After I got back from Iraq in 2004, I began two and a half years of work to achieve my Danish Farrier's Certification. This meant (while maintaining my work) hitting the work shop every morning and pounding out two pair of shoes every day. Weekends I'd work on special shoes. Along side this I had anatomy to study. This was done in English and Danish as the test was taken in Danish. Then three times I had to go for a three week period to Copenhagen to the official farrier's school. But it was all worth the hard work and time. I passed the test, then came to the States and stood for the certification test with The Guild of Professional Farriers.
No matter if you're going to college, or doing a trade exam like I did, it takes time, time and time. But the things we learn in the military (dedication, achieving goals, self discipline) will help you achieve what you want - it did me.

Capt Brandon Charters - I know it was a little off subject, but if you set your goals, do your homework things will pan out.

100%. It's very relatable in my opinion.
