I was hoping to do SCEA from long time ago, but didn't found enough time to commit myself to the exam. I just got to know that they have imposed new restrictions on the exam by adding compulsory training. I cant clearly afford such a large sum of money for level one exam. I just wonder at least whether they provide us a certificate or a transcript at the completion of each level. If so we can complete each level and we get something to show to employer even though we don't have the final certification.
