I normally don't toot my own horn, but in this case, I have to. Today I took the final exam for the editing course I took at UNM (online).
I scored 100!
The test was 36 multiple choice questions. Granted, it was open book and there was no time limit, but there were a few tricky questions.
I have a nice certificate, too.
Next (starting May 18) I'll be taking two classes -- Accounting Fundamentals and Successful Construction Business Management. I have experience in Accounting, but I've never had any formal training.
As for the second one, I've maintained a friendship with one of the Project Managers at the construction company I used to work for. He and another guy have formed a partnership and a new construction company and he wants me to run the office. It's still in the early stages, so I'll have time to learn a lot in these classes before things get rolling.
The classes aren't live; they're "posted" to the website twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays.
It's been a long time since I've taken classes; I'm happy and excited that I did so well in the editing class and I'm looking forward to these two courses.
