As far as the blog you refer being accurate, I would beg to differ, but won't address all the points here. I will say this--having my e-PRO designation has kept me up to date with all the latest technology and how to use it by being a part of the e-PRO's online community. Some of the smartest tech people around know are on the blogs every day with excellent advice/information. It has been my most valuable tool thus far in the business. I no longer waste time, money, or energy on worthless products. I am light-years ahead of anyone in my company when it comes to using and understanding the technology. So, where the course leaves off, the education is continued on a daily basis on the e-PRO blog.
Whether you are computer literate or not, there is something to learn by taking this course. It's very indepth and worthwhile.
