Plea for help: The detriment of using Microsoft products

I didn't miss your point.  Lead Assessors do the assessment and pass 
to SEI.  the "certification" is like my CPR certification - I'm not, 
I have a card saying I've taken the class and passed the test.
Difference?  Practically, none.  Legally, considerable, as the AHA
can't be held liable if I do CPR wrong. Check the site
for documents including reviews of assessed sites, and comparisons of
high-maturity sites. Yes, the orgs are "honor system" listed, but that
doesn't mean they don't go through a rigorous assessment.
