On Friday, I received an email letting me know that I had passed the ACA exam. On Saturday, I received my welcoming packed and my test scores (I did slightly better than I thought, and aced arrangement and description!), received my information sheet yesterday, and mailed it in today. One hurdle, accomplished!
Next step in my education, the Digital Archives Specialist Certification! I took one class at SAA, and will be taking another next Thursday. I've scoped out the six on-demand webinars, and look forward to taking them, too. I have yet to find out if the class exams have been posted, but will take them as soon as possible.
