I have just received my PFF last month in Canada. One of the issues is that there are currently only 2 IPFF Course Conductors in all of Canada.
Derek is one of them in Alberta and we heard that in July he put on a PFF course. As it turned out, the two of us had lined up our PFF course a few months prior to that so we flew to Montreal and took the course with Mario (I don't speak french either). Wow, what a course and a half (no vacation, it was all be the duck
) and the tunnel was a tremendous training aid (we really, really needed it). Right after us at Skydive Montreal there was another course lined up for 3 more candidates.
I do feel your pain. Tons of emails sent into the "black hole". I learned long ago to go direct. Don't ask for something to be done for you and don't wait for people to get back to you. Find the course conductor you want and email/phone them directly.http://www.cspa.ca/en/cwc/learning-facilitator-list
