Yeah! Found a course that will give me 30 of the 40 remaining Professional Education hrs required to maintain my NCMA certification.

I received accreditation in 2015 after having worked for over 5 yrs in contract management and having completed professional education. However at that point I was working on an Agile development project as a contract SME ensuring requirements of the contract data points for deals in the financial security space were built into the operations system design.

I updated the configurarion on my phone.

It took over a month to get Tracfone to unlock this (I was busy....not really big priority for me. Getting work done at work took precedence).

Then it took another month for new carrier REACH mobile to get this working.

Sim said #000 000 0000 for weeks

Finally they figured something out, likely some new software upgrade hit my phone and

TODAY it worked!

Not that it matters MUCH
But for that one momemt when it will matter it is good it is back on.
