We are thrilled to spotlight Michele Anselmetti from Miami Breakers for being the first to achieve the prestigious PEARL Level 3 Certified Technician status. Michele shared his journey and insights about the PEARL Level 3 Technician Certification Program with us.
Did you find the training to be helpful to prepare for the exam? If so, how?
Yes, the training program was immensely helpful in preparing for the Level 3 exam. It proved an essential learning material, which allowed me to build a strong foundation in the subject matter, especially considering how ample the subjects are. Additionally, the program often included practice exams and assessments, which were invaluable in identifying areas where I needed further study.
As I delved into the various subjects covered by the test, I realized that it’s much more than just a simple exam, case in point fuses, never had any idea there were so many types of them, depending on your background you have you will find that some areas are not your forte, Therefore, if you find that certain areas are not your strong suit, be prepared to invest extra effort and focused study in those areas.
Any advice for other technicians that plan to enroll in the Level 3 program?
Take full advantage of the training materials and resources provided in the program. Maintaining a positive attitude is crucial when preparing for a Level 3 exam, as it can be challenging. A positive mindset can make a significant difference in your success.
