Wow, Rob, that's a far nicer certificate than the one I received from a particular manufacturer's course -- which looked like something my little niece cobbled together, in five minutes, on a rinky-dink graphics program, to frame a photo of her cat . . .

Being able to work on your own gear with confidence; how to troubleshoot various issues that may arise; and knowing something of the theory behind it, is far more valuable, in the long run, than being able to obtain parts directly from a manufacturer, while sitting in a Radisson conference room for four-plus hours, among stale danishes, bodega coffee, and next to a couple of guys who were all-but certain to botch someone's set of nice Swedish regulators . . .
