    Good evening Tyler,
    I am currently taking ISSA courses and passed 2 of 3 that I signed up for. Currently, I have been through a change in schedule due to covid, and was not granted an email extension in time when I asked as for one due to … well many reasons. Now I sit without lights or power to complete my course for Transformation specialist certification because of a hurricane hitting Bermuda. I really think that to do the course correctly I should have been given more time. A year for all 3 seems ok when you start but then reality (covid, hospitalization of a family member, Mother Nature,etc) can run amuck and put a thorn in ones plans. Just a thought that sometimes clients have to be handled like you would in the drawing in phase. Venting as soon I will not have a phone with power
    Thanks,
    Robin

      I’m sorry to hear about your tough situation. This whole covid-19 is ruining a lot of people’s plans. I would definitely reach out to ISSA explain your situation and I would bet that they will grant you an extension. Keep up the good studying and good luck on your future personal trainer career.
