    Congrats Stephanie........I recall mine taking a long time to get to me too. Just don't do like I did and let it expire. I was in the middle of a move when my grace period expired so I guess at least I kindasorta had an excuse. I will take the test again one of these days to get it back though!

    Hello Stephanie,

    Glad to hear it finally arrived. Now have it framed and put up on your "Me Wall".

    I was pretty excited when I got my refrigeration certificate, but the funny thing is it only took 8 days to get ;-) I haven't framed it or put it up on my wall yet though. I honestly don't know if I have enough room for it :-)

    Enjoy and congrats,

    Darris C.

    Thanks guys!! I will never let it expire. This was a big enough ordeal I would never want to do it again. I told my boss that I was hanging it in a neon pink frame that plugged into the wall with flashing lights! I think it is a great idea don't you?
    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    I got mine, too, and framed it right away. It now hangs in a place of honor in my office. I also went and got 12 CECs this weekend, so now I guess I can relax for the next 3 years!

    Congratulations, Steph!!!

    Although you now have your certificate, keep the thirst for knowledge going. This occupation is ever-changing, so 'keep on-keep'n on'!!! Maybe your Masters soon????

    Again...Congratulations!!!!

    Yes, I received mine, too. And I liked your idea about the neon pink frame so much, that I decided to make mine really noticable. I hot-glued neon colored plastic sunglasses all around the frame. The boss doesn't like it at all, says it's not very professional looking. But, it is MY certificate, I did NOT get a raise, and if it's just not professional enough for our lab, then I guess it will look just as impressive in my house. Congrats again!

    Thanks everyone!!! Lab meister, I think your idea was excellent. I am still looking for the right frame. I am one of those people who is looking for it and will know it when I see it. May end up making one too who knows!
    Have a great day!!
