Angela,

I sent out the same question recently and can forward you my responses.
All were in favor of getting certified, and I think I will pursue this
option.  However, I have only been doing this for 10 months, and you need 3
years experience to sit for the Certification exam.

I have never heard of the "certified grant specialist-level 1."  Could you
forward me think information?  Perhaps fax it to (716)239-6028?  I would
greatly appreciate it.
