    I am recommencing my professional life. I have been completely retired for over a year now. My maintenance chemo for my Glioblastoma Multiforme often leaves me exhausted. Next month, I will be a five-year survivor. Amazing medical team, amazing support from my wife, family, friends, and the world-wide Judo/grappling community, prayer, and the Grace of God have made me an outlier living with brain cancer. I get miracles every day. My neurosurgeon and my oncologist call me the 'poster child for the Standard of Care' I feel I have an obligation to get out there and shout about overcoming life's challenges. I don't want to sit inside these four walls anymore. Just in time, an amazing opportunity came knocking. I am so grateful for my miracles. I get way more than my fair share. Updates to follow

    Thank you, Steve. This is the program https://ivmf.syracuse.edu/
    I will work on SPHR Certification as,HRM was one of my Navy and federal government specialties. IVMF appears to be a wonderful opportunity. I'm so eager to begin tomorrow.

    I'm rapidly moving through the course work. I expect to take a practice exam soon. Other than my inconsistent Wi Fi, I am enjoying the program.

    My course work, which consists of SkillSoft LMS slides is virtually complete. I've attempted a couple of full-length practice exams. IVMF includes resume review and career coaching/mentoring. It really seems to good to be real. The program is grant funded. There is no cost to the military member/veteran or spouse. GI Bill is not used at all. I encourage active duty members approaching separation and Honorably separated veterans to give it a look. Many military spouses are in my cohort.
    Updates as I near taking me actual SPHR Certification Exam.

    Way to go Charles! I am close to my three year anniversary of being diagnosed with colon cancer... which led to my total retirement. It's really nice to see fellow survivors and brother (and sister of course) veterans move on with life and tackle new adventures! I wish you all the best and will keep you in my prayers!

    Bruce, Brother, you and yours are in my prayers. I'm truly riding a wave of miracles, which I attribute to prayer more than anything.
