Certification Updates

Certification Manuals
The moment you have all been waiting for! The manuals arrived from the printer and next week they will be available for purchase.

If you have taken a certification in the past you will automatically be mailed a link next week to purchase one. When you go to check-out from the link you need to tell us which session and instructor you attended so we can verify your records. One manual per person. Pay Pal may tell you you can order more, but you cannot.

Meanwhile, please DO NOT call or send us an e-mail about buying the manual and tell us you were not sent a link yet. We will be sending out notices all next week. If you do not get a link by May 10th, then you may contact us.

NOTE: We will only be selling manuals until June 30th. After that date you will have to re-take a certification class for $40 to be able to get a new manual.

Upcoming classes

Til said...

Hi there, how do I get an application for Boise? Thanks so much!

Sherrie said...

Hey Til....I'm responding because Marianne is off to land "down under" and I am the instructor for the Boise event. If you are looking for an application you can find one HERE:

See you there!

Cindy Groh said...

I think this maybe a dumb question but here it goes. When the listing says stores and designers, who qualifies as a designer?
Thanks Cindy

Mrs. ABC said...

Oh I can't wait. Less than a month away. See you in Arlington, Tx. He he. Can you tell I'm so excited.

Terri said...

I still didn't get an email about the manuals. I took the class last September. Could you please send me a link to buy one? Thanks!!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE! Trena said...

I received my manual! It is a great resource. Thanks for sharing all the information in one handy book Marianne!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

Suzzi said...

I am in the June 12 class, does that mean manuals will be available for purchase at the class or we get it with the class?

Unknown said...

In your post you said that we would receive an e-mail the following week for those who had previously taken the certification Class.
I took the Class in Savage, MD on 04/05/2009 with Sally Lynn.
However I have not received the e-mail, could you please forward me the link.

I would love to have a manual, but haven't received an email. My name is Christine Powell and I took a certification course with Marianne on January 23, 2009 at the Anaheim Marriott in Southern California. My email address is shooskua[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks, Christine

I took the certification class in Phoenix Arizona on April 19th. We were given manuals as part of the class. Is this the same one that is available for sale? I didn't receive an email link so I am not certain. Please let me know.

I didn't get an email about a manual either. I took the cert. class in South Carolina a year or so ago. Please contact me as I haven't been listed on the Cert. list on the website either.
