Zach, so let's talk now a little bit about the course itself, when we viewer click the play button for the first time. What is this course all about and what are they going to get out of it. Well, the first thing I wanna mention is that hard skills, which are certifications, are hands on their technical abilities and aptitudes. So important gotta have that.
