Who should I ask if I have questions? - Chad Weinman can be found at

I know as a practitioner and trainer that many professionals value having a "badge of honor" associated with specialized knowledge and skills. With the launch of this new certification, I wanted to offer all those previously certified (CXOWARE FAIR Analysts) and all those formally trained to a special free 2-Part webinar series designed to help you obtain the new Open FAIR certification. - Chad Weinman


We would also like to thank the Open Group for sponsoring these sessions, each individual session will last approximately 2 hours.

*Bonus -The Open Group has offered a 50% discounted exam voucher for all previously certified analysts whom wish to transition to the new Open FAIR certification. Voucher to be used within 6 months.

*Note each webinar qualifies for Professional CPE Credit.
