I agree with you, we were specifically told in day one NOT to worry about that stuff and only focus on what topics were being instructed.

My brother took the ROW the first go around and he was pissed at the amount of additiond due to a "rush" they had been planning it since may. Just sayin

I think the problem is that they really hadn't been planning since May... the rules were changed last May at the State level, but the courses were only really pulled together this winter, when John Deere Landscapes stepped up to sponsor them, and Cooperative Extension put it together. For the summer and most of fall what little I could get was barely more than rumors. An inspector told us about the new certificates back in August - but no-one seemed to know anything more until the NHLA newsletter "feelers" in the fall.
Anyone know how the old style certificates were taught?

I am really glad now, that I waited for the second session, even if it means the orals will be dragged out into late spring.

How did the exam go, if you don't mind my asking?

I will be there.


Does anyone know of any more upcoming events/seminars? I keep missing them this year because I either don't find out until after they are over or only a day or two before
