Yep, I keep my certificate framed in my room and my pen in my workshop.

So SpudStuff, did you learn more than you expected from that course?

I took that course long before I even considered selling things. Just put some BS company name. They don't check to see if it exists.

Well i just passed the test like 15 minutes ago. Turns out after you register you can't have any pop blocker on, or you have to temporary allow pop ups to let the window to open and get the course. Since no one else has posted a pic or the rewards for passing, when i get mine, i will post pics, or give photobucket links for solid proof of passing the course. Something that bugs me is the instructions for solvent welding form instruction sorce to sorce differ very much, Who to beleave?

Some just give instructions and don't think about it. IPEX is right. Think about it. You put primer in the fitting first because it is harder and is protected from the wind. Then you prime the pipe and cement the pipe. The cement blocks the primer from drying. Then you cement the fitting. The two parts will join together easily and rotating it will evenly distribute the solvents.
