    "This year, USTC and Kukkiwon will be hosting four Kukkiwon Instructor
    Seminars. Dates and locations are not final yet, but there will be at least
    one in California (perhaps one is southern region and one in northern
    region), one in Texas, and another on the east coast somewhere. The
    tentative date for the seminars is late April or May and they probably will
    be held on four consecutive weekends.
    The President of the Kukkiwon, GM LEE Seung Wan, feels that a policy of
    globalization and internationalization is of the utmost priority, and these
    Kukkiwon Instructor Courses is the first step. Other countries may also soon
    be hosting Kukkiwon Instructor Courses as well."

    So does this mean they will expect everyone to do it over and over again each year? I understand the importance of being up to date, but how often are they really gonna want you to attend? annually?

    On a side note, Changing your name should be simple, email Kukkiwon and request it. They may require you to mail it in and pay, but when you email them, they should tell you how to get it done.

    Folks aren't we still awesome! I was just browsing through the new Kukkiwon web site and stumbled on this little nugget. From 1998 to 2008 only 1,273 non-Korean people worldwide had completed the 1st-3rd Class Foreign Instructor (Master Instructor) Course, and out of those only 691 qualified for certification/licencing.

    That's a fairly dismal pass rate or high failure rate depending on how you look at it.

    Here's the page with the data. Note the label for instructor has been changed to coaches:

    You get certified once but you can take the course over as many times as you want. I took the 17th FIC as a refresher.

    Also, there are different Courses for different classes of instructors:
    4th & 5th dans: 3rd Class
    6 & 7th dans: 2nd Class
    8 & 9th dans: 1st Class

    I guess the other thing that this demonstrates is that the Kukkiwon does not believe you stop learning (or can't improve as an instructor) at 9th dan. Growth and learning continue as long as you are alive.

    That's just way too long! I did a 4th dan and a 1st dan online and we got the certificates in about 2 weeks. I suggest you call the KKW.

    They were "misplaced". I guess they decided to stop doing mail in applications way before they actually announced it! Anywho, 1-2 more weeks and then "in the Mail".

    We'll see. still dont show online!

    I wondering the same thing. This is what Mr. Harris sent

    "To All,

    I want to give you the latest information regarding your certificates from the
    Kukkiwon Master Instructor Course. As I told you in an earlier email, I am in
    possession of the Kukkiwon Instructor Course Certificates from Kukkiwon,
    hand-delivered by President Sang Chul Lee. Since we received them we have been
    in the process of designing the License Certificates that you will also receive.
    The design process has been completed and the certificates are at the printers.
    It is my fervent hope to get both the Kukkiwon Master Instructor Course
    Certificates and ID Cards, along with the USTC License Certificates in the mail
    by this weekend. Hopefully, you will be able to appreciate the work and effort
    that went into creating a License Certificate that you will be proud to display
    in your Dojang, I apologize for the delay in the creation and printing of the
    additional certificates, and I thank you for your patience and understanding.

    As a reminder, those of you who are 4th Dan and higher will be receiving the
    certificates and ID card. Those of you who took the course as 3rd Dan, upon
    receiving your Kukkiwon 4th Dan and, upon sending to the USTC a check or money
    order for the additional $50 will also receive these certificates and ID Card.

    You should receive your certificates in the very near future.

    ~Bruce Harris "

    I didn't know the president of the Kukkiwon is Kukkiwon. That's what it says on the Kukkiwon instructor certificate and card.

    The graduation cert they gave us looks like that one. I asked an 8th dan friend of mine and he said that it was official. He did wonder why I took the course though. Said that we basically do not need it in the US.

    This is true but it always helps to get more training whenever it is possible.

    Agreed, if anything, just the chance to work out with fellow Masters is worth it. Its not everyday you can actually work within your pear group.

    How about reviving a dead horse. I just stumbled on this online copy of a KKW master intructor certificate and the wording is quite different from the one on the certificates issued to the folks who attended the 17th FIC in Chicago:
