Observing Program Division Request - On-Line Database

We need your help!  We would like to make sure that our on-line database is as accurate as possible.  Please take a few minutes and confirm that Observing Program certifications you have earned are represented.

We know that recent ones may not have had a chance to be entered yet, but submissions should have been made on 4/1/2022, so hopefully most of them have made it on-line.

If you find any discrepancies, please send an email to Aaron Clevenson at aaron@clevenson.org.  We will do what we can to correct the issues.
