It was really odd finishing, when I completed to qualification lab and had to leave the room I was quite moved and didn’t really want to leave!! A room with no windows, 15 other consultants, all learning together. We each had 2 laptops, plus our own work laptop, 2 phones, lots of network cables and given the amount of time we had spent there it had become home.
I passed, but I kept wanting to pinch myself to see if it was real, not quite sure I had really managed it.
Last night I when I was awake during the night, dozing, I kept thinking about the questions on the exam and the qualification lab, thinking up new answers etc. I couldn’t seem to switch off and realise it is finished.
Well it is finished, but I won’t be forgetting it. I have learnt a lot over the last 3 weeks which I know will make a big difference to my work. It was hard work, but I knew that before I came. I hadn’t realised how hard it would be not being there for Kal and the kids with them dealing with mum and dad. My thanks to them for allowing me to come and I think given all I have learned it was worth it.
