WEll, my references all passed the test, I passed the interview, and now sat through training.
The instructor was FABULOUS! So witty and obviously in love with what he does; the training was perfect (exactly what I needed, and not one thing more then necessary)and he made it all relevent, light-handed (even with some more sobering topics), and humerous.
I highly recommend volunteering.
Other then that, my CPO designation will have to wait till january. Darnit, and I had those buisness cards all made up;
"Michelle Ernst, BA. CPO. Solider of fortune and Outrageous liar"
Last big thing being christmas. Can't wait for family to arrive, then the holidays really start!
