In the sections that follow next, I cover a variety of financing options briefly and only superficially. Use this information not as a complete guide to these financing options, but as a way of identifying potential sources of funding that you might be able to use to help you get your certification for a reasonable total price. You'll still need to investigate further to nail down all the options, terms, and conditions (what contract connoisseurs like to call "the fine print"I cover only "big print" items here) to be able to mention as many options as possible.
