This week, instead of sharing a perspective with you, we want to gather some information about you so we can tailor the Training & Certification Channel and the Training & Certification UPDATE content to meet your needs. Below are some questions about you and your training and certification plans. As we seek to provide a better e-newsletter, your comments and feedback are vital. Please take a moment to give us your feedback. Post your answers as a Reader Comment and see what other readers have to say.
