I passed my first aid/CPR/AED test this morning. That’s cool, because I’ve been meaning to brush up on CPR for a while now. Jen and I took some first aid training a few months back in our initial foster parent training class, but they didn’t cover CPR.
Interestingly, the instructor taught me how to save someone’s life (or try valiantly) in about three hours and one written quiz. However, becoming a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer takes about twelve weeks (if you take a typical class), and, what, seven major computer-based tests.
Of course, if our Active Directory ever goes down, it may well be a life-threatening situation for me (or possibly those around me).
