I'm not using the title of this article as the subject so everyone knows they can take the pearl course for free. There's a coupon in the article that will allow you to take their course on pearls to become certified as a pearl specialist, if that interests you. ;)

"WHILE THE WORLD is experiencing unprecedented times, many find comfort in what’s familiar. This includes family and friends and occasions that are still being celebrated, albeit at a distance.

Additionally, the CPAA continues to offer its comprehensive, web-based Pearls As One education free of charge. Use the coupon code INSTOREPEARLS to take our internationally peer-reviewed course at pearlsasone.org. Upon finishing, you will become a certified ... "
