  1. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to that.  Great question.  I would presume it will be a fairly sufficient time – like through June of this year.  Just long enough that you won't forget the content before you take the test.  🙂


  2. Q: What is the timeframe of the offer?
    A: This offer expires on May 31, 2012. All training sessions must be taken and the vouchers must be redeemed and exams taken by that date.
