I've been just lurking here for quite a while, but this assertion I
cannot ignore.

This is equivalent to ignoring the practical issues that Fred raised.
As an OpenEMR developer and supporter, there's no way that such a

be continually evolving and so quickly rendering any given
certification obsolete.
