I’m CP/HP Certified! Woohoo!!! I passed my test :)
Now it’s on to the advance test. I’m super excited about the advance test. I get to actually formulate my own recipe and record myself making it and submit a bar of soap to the Guild :D There is also a multiple choice question section too I’ll have to pass. I’m not that worried about it. Now that I’ve got the first one out of the way the stress of the unknown is no longer there.
I’ve been asked quite a few times now if you “need” the certification tests. You don’t really, but I teach soap classes all the time and for me these tests allow me to add a certified in my author bio for these classes and I like know that I’ve a way to prove to students that I really do know what I’m talking about when I teach them :D
As an added bonus the conference offered a couple classes that I participated in that I know will help me with the Advanced test too. So I say bring it on!
