Had to rush to get this out ASAP.
On Monday, I told you that you had only a few days to take advantage of the current offer from Brainspace for all of its certification courses and learning content for FREE through April. Today’s the last day to sign up. But, there’s also good news!
Here is an excerpt of an email I received from Brainspace yesterday:
“I wanted to remind everyone that you do have 90 days from the date you enrolled to complete your certification course(s). Good luck. You got this!
As a reminder there will be no extensions granted beyond the 90 days for enrollments that occurred during the April training promotion.”
So, you only have to sign up by today and START your training and certification process. You don’t have to complete it today, only sometime within 90 days!
Again, kudos to Brainspace for offering the free training and certification during this time, it’s a smart way to build loyalty for their product!
By the way, a few folks have complained about the fact the Brainspace hasn’t opened the promo to people with personal email addresses, which essentially means that people out of work can’t take advantage of it. However, you can get a business email address for (at least) as low as $6 per month with a G Suite account. That’s how I got my ediscoverytoday.com email address. That can be a way to get in as my guess is that they are screening for common email domains (e.g., gmail, yahoo, hotmail, etc.). Just a thought.
Speaking of certifications, I came across a blog post this morning from HaystackID where they discuss certifications and their commitment to product certification programs for Relativity, Brainspace and Nuix. They listed all of the certification programs for these three providers, but then they also did something else interesting – they listed all of their employees who have achieved each of those certifications. 119 people earning 18 different certifications. Great idea for two reasons: 1) it publicly recognizes the accomplishments of their employees, and 2) it illustrates their commitment to education and the expertise of their team. That’s smart.
So, what do you think? Do you have 90 days to pick up one to two Brainspace certifications? If so, you’d better start today! Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
