It seems being “certified” in your field is the new Master’s. I’m only two credits away from being certified as a medical writer, but I’m not holding my breath because it takes lots of money and the classes are sometimes far away. I still really haven’t figured out the benefits of becoming certified (although the courses have been extremely helpful), but damnit, I want the title!
Anyways, J’s certification came at perfect timing as he is attending another wonderful Rec Director conference this week. At a ski lodge. And he called this morning to tell me he won a free night at a NH AMC hut. I sure picked the wrong field to work in.
Yes, I am envious. Yes I know it is one of the seven deadly sins!
