Note: If you are an ALPHA Instructor, you will re-certify as a a Vanguard Two Instructor. The ALPHA course will no longer be offered. With the vast majority of instructors opting to get Vanguard I & II Certified, keeping up the ALPHA Program became unfeasible.

So, you may now become Vanguard II Certified independent of having a Vanguard I Certification.
