Very difficult, to be quite honest. Testing is tedious yet expansive. Candidates prepare for the tests by direct experience in the field, so it is true competency being assessed, not just one’s ability to absorb reams of book knowledge.

Because Hawn believes in maintaining and providing the highest quality service in the industry. Hawn takes this certification very seriously, for it is a very good way of communicating to you, our customers our strong dedication to consistent excellence.
