New hires in these roles can also benefit from attending. A significant amount of technical content is covered that requires the attendees to have a basic concrete technology background and at least a high-school level of math (to test your math skills, click here). Success on obtaining certification will depend on the individual’s experience and ability to grasp the course content prior to the exam. It is the responsibility of the registrant and his/her manager to ensure that attendee has the requisite qualifications to attend this technical course. NRMCA offers education programs for a wide range of job functions within the industry with appropriate technical content.
