    You can get practicode from the Resources Tab under Job Experience/ Apprentice removal. FYI it is pricey, it cost $250 but you can get the modules separately for $100 each if you want to do one module at a time. Also if you do practicode , you do...

    Your teacher had no right to say you will find work right after getting your CPC. Just ask 99.9% of people on here who are trying to land that first job. Your teacher needs to get real about employment prospects without experience and not mislead...
