    Great! Too bad I live at Riverside, California. I can’t get any help from them to even get the form to fill out. Can’t find the form anywhere. I called them twice and they say what form. each week they tell me to call back next Thursday and they are closed on Friday’s. Today they said call back in 2 weeks. I want to take Oracle training at Netcomm, guess I can forget about that.
