    My first job was selling electronics at Sears. We sold 286 machines and they had the key on the front you could turn and go from 6mhz up to 12mhz.!!!

    As far as ICC website suggestions go, I don't think mine will be listened to. Ever since I complained about the renewal ripoff (renew early and it resets your renewal date to the date the renewal was paid, making it 2 years and X months instead of 3 years) and the quality of the 2009 books, they won't return my emails.

    We purchase all of our books through WABO so all I really use their website for is the ES reports.

    If they want compliments, the help wanted board is laid out pretty nice.

    I, like others though, will not go to their discussion fourms. I have contributed $$ here and I am very happy with the content and structure as well as the contributions from the member base that exists.

    This is starting to sound like more of a rant, rather than useful suggestions.

    Before the ICC closed the forum, I was a member. I can still see my name. So I tried to log in. I get the message that I am not in the database. I tried to create a new account but I get the message that I am already in the database. I sent an e-mail to the ICC. I mentioned this in a thread with Kyle, at least I think it's Kyle from ICC. Never heard a word. About that, but lots of other e-mail. I can't say how the forum might work because I can't use it but it sure is a plain Jane affair. And nothing much going on so I'm in no hurry. Two slow forums, who needs tit?

    Who needs what?

    The only complaint I have about the ICC site is the fact that it is difficult to find your way around.

    It is VERY difficult to navigate through. I'm with jp, the store portion of it is terrible. I'm always buying new codebooks and I have better luck navigating through NFPA's website when it comes to purchasing items. I can't stand the fact that I have to enter my user name and password every single time I want to do something on their site. There's no excuse for not being able to store my information, just like any other site.

    Keep the feedback coming folks!

    The candidates bulletin has been reduced to testing only. Good luck trying to find the info for what exams it takes to qualify as a combination inspector or CBCO, CPCO, CMCO, CECO or any other multi certification title. Agree with the other comments about logging in and using any online service they offer. I started buying books elswhere because it was easier. We fax our certification renewals because the online option made mistakes on 2 different occasions.

    Exam information and ceu tracking & recertification are also on my radar. Thanks MT.

    I view & post occasionally on the ICC site. It's not as active as this one, so my use reflects the reduceed volume.

    Until today. I just tried logging in but the site doesn't remember me, or my email or anything. That is, until I try creating a new account, then it jams me up and... oh to hell with it

    Follow precedent set by the last committee to study the ICC's forums and shut them down?

    I'm sure if you google the term, all will become clear.

    One guys experience

    What he found was not correct. He was looking at the pencil paper exams, missed the computor option, and the 3 test sites available within the state and that test are given weekly

    As I said not user friendly
