I have the greatest of respect for each of you, who left work and went home to study. Attaining industry specific accreditation ensures more in-depth knowledge . . . and it no doubt enhances your prospects in the job market. I also encourage the employers who encourage their staff to develop themselves. These are employers who recognize that the success of their business is linked to the competence of their employees.”
