Well, it has been almost a year since my last update, so I have obviously made some progress on my eCPPT course/exam.
As of March 7th, I received my certification, and am officially an eCPPT! Officially it took me 284 days (including 3x $100 30-day extensions) from start to finish, so it was definitely an investment. I do have to give a special shout-out to my girlfriend though, for helping me kick it into gear towards the end, get everything finished up, and avoid yet another $100 extension.
I know it has been a while since my last update, so I plan on adding a post about the exam itself (spoiler free), a review of the course in its entirety, and anything else that I’ve done in the meantime
