  1. Hi!
    The link to CERTT does not seem to be working (or perhaps that is just a temporary issue on the University’s side?).

  2. It’s working for me. Maybe if you refresh your browser or try to close and reopen it. Otherwise, you always have the option to do a google search and see if you can access it from there. Hope this works.
