GoCertify Observes Memorial Day (U.S.)

The GoCertify offices are closed today, May 27, in observance of the U.S. holiday Memorial Day. But we didn't just walk away and leave you with nothing until Tuesday.

GoCertify is closed in honor of Memorial Day.Today is Memorial Day here in the United States. It’s a federal holiday, so the GoCertify home office is closed until Tuesday. Memorial Day honors the American citizens, both men and women, who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. It is spiritually akin to Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11), which honors all Armed Forces members, including those who did not die while serving.
