Adobe ColdFusion Specialist Certificate Program

From the CF Summit Website:

The Adobe ColdFusion Specialist is a full-day certificate classroom program, delivered by top Adobe ColdFusion experts. You will be enrolled into the course as soon as you register and will receive course instructions and prep materials two weeks prior to the on-site program date. Following the training you will complete an online assessment – upon successful completion, you will receive your Adobe ColdFusion Specialist certificate.

It has been a long time since the last ColdFusion Certification program, back with ColdFusion 9 I believe.
