Agreed. But not to worry! This is not a certification that you can get just by paying a fee. You have to meet eligibility requirements even to apply; and we have already turned people because they didn't meet the education requirements, the work experience requirements, or both.
As one of our commissioners has said, the program becomes credible the day we don't pass someone.
