This Update is directed to those who have enrolled in all three Classes of our virtual SEM Course and who have decided to proceed to achieve SEM Course Certification.
Please be sure to notify Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) that you want to proceed to Course Certification. We need an accurate record of those who are on the certification track.
Also, the Certification process as described in our July Post has not changed. We do, however, want to add a couple of things:
First, several have expressed concern about timing. We were hoping that most would be able complete the Certification Exercise by the end of September, but we understand fully if you need more time. Let’s try to work with an ultimate end date of 15 December 2022, still striving to get it done sooner. Those who enrolled after Q1 2022 may need more time, and that is fine. Please contact Jeff, when you know your actual timing so he can schedule your presentations.
Second, we are thinking it might help with timing if we allowed you to work in teams on the Certification Exercise. So,
- You may team up with one other participant to share the work of doing this Certification Exercise.
- Doing so will not affect your Certification eligibility.
- The two of you would make the presentations together, sharing the tasks however you decide.
- Please let Jeff know if two of you want to work as a team. Jeff will be circulating a list of eligible enrollees with contacts to help you decide.
Finally, remember to have fun with this exercise. Make it an interesting learning experience, not a chore. Try to set aside meaningful time, away from work and daily tasks, to prepare.
Again, thank you all for your participation our SEM Course.
Jon, Brad, Steve and Jeff
