I work for a call center and we rep a very well known org that provides certifications for things like CPR LIFEGUARDING BASIC LIFE SUPPORT n the such. We offer online only courses, blended courses (1/2 online half in person) and classroom only (all in person) We have a site in which both students and the instructors can log into. The students to do their online work and view their certs. The instructors set up classes record how the student did. State whether or not they were successful in passing the skills test. If anyone has issues they call us for support. I have a few good ones. Let us start with yesterday. I’ll be M the caller will be C.

I had a CPR cert with company XYZ (not us) it was expired but I didn’t want to take their class again. I wanted your org to change the date and extend it so it didn’t expire and put your logo on it.
M im sorry sir for any miscommunication there may have been however you would’ve needed to take one of our vlasses to get a cert from us. You can find classes at (gives link)
C so your not going to fix my expired cert from XYZ without me taking a class,? The whole point was I didn’t want to pay. Are you giving me a free class for this stupidity?
M no sir I apologize how ever you will need to take a full class in order to get a cert from us. Unfortunately no we can not give you a free course. Is there anything else I can h help you with?
