GA Review[edit]

I do not believe that this article fits the requirements for Good Article status. One of the key requirements is a well-written article, and there is almost no prose in this article. The article simply consists of three tables and some prose copied and pasted from If anything, this is a copyright violation problem.

The article also seems to lack breadth. For example, how many people hold this certificate? When did it become mandatory? Are there only two websites that mention this certificate? If so, is it sufficiently notable to warrant an article?

If this topic does warrant an article, I urge you to continue your research and try to expand this article. I also believe that the "Syllabus" section needs a complete rewrite, as copying that much text word-for-word could create legal problems.

Pictures, neutrality, and stability aren't a problem. I believe that the concerns I have brought up in this review are substantial, however, and I am failing the nomination. If you believe that this review is in error, please feel free to seek a second opinion at Good article reassessment. Best wishes, GaryColemanFan (talk) 17:53, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
