entitled to attend a FREE Hands-On Seminars course of his/her choice.
4. We encourage TAs to review the course manual, before the course they assist.

Initially I was very reluctant about the certification program. The course instructors, the teaching materials and the relentless lab sessions made it possible for me to become a certified professional.
