when i went, there were no required courses. you simply paid the aplication fee, paid for the books (that never adressed aeration at all) and took the test. even in my recertification courses, they adressed the importance of aerating, but the instructor said " when the grass is actively growing."

Yup, what good does it do if the grass is not "ACTIVELY" growing?
If the lawn is dormant or near dormant as it is in July, what purpose does it serve?
