Let's see, 5 CEU's per class, so only 24 classes every three years. Gee,
only 8 classes per year, EVERY year, no exceptions! But, if a Sec Admin
took 2 classes at each conference, only four are required, at $2500 each.
Or, 1 class at each conference, so eight at $1500 each.
Of course the good news is that the instructors will be Cheswick, or equal,
right? Right?? And they will talk slow enough you can take good notes, as
no recording equipment is allowed at that price. And the guy next to you
will not make noise this time, right? And the CO2 and the heat will be at
a reasonable level this time, right? And ...
Yeah! I'll bet every one of those folks do that! And, of course, that is
after spending $400 to take the class and another $150 to take the test.
I can't hardly wait,
