On Tuesday August 13th, 2019, 17 bleary-eyed EdTOAns started a 4 day journey at the SUNY Center for Professional Development in Syracuse towards Avixa CTS certification. Over the next 3 days, they would be bombarded by pneumonic devices, math equations, industry standard ratings, and continental breakfasts. On Friday, all of them passed their CTS certification exam. Many thanks to AVIXA, EdTOA, and the SUNY CPD for organizing a wonderful professional certification review and exam.
