          My two cents...

          Context, fraud investigator with 12 years eCommerce fraud experience. Passed with 93% after 7 hours prep time going through the entire course and reading assignments. Definitely worth while certification and glad I got it.

          This is a very good course. I suggested the time estimate of completion for each part. More real challenges would also increase the practical side of the class. Overall great
