And I really do mean fortunate. On March 10th I am to embark in five weeks of some of the toughest technical training that I will do during my career. I have been to week long ramp-ups and boot-camps to help facilitate learning during my career. But this is far and above anything that I think I endured or will ever go through again. This is not training to teach, but rather to enforce and to fill gaps. You must be nominated, then pass a pre-interview to make sure that you are qualified to attempt the certification. I am finishing up the last pre-requisites this week and my management has allowed me to clear my calendar for five weeks as well as foot the cost of my training at our Redmond Campus - not cheap.
