    It took me 6 months to find a job and I would have definitely taken a refresher course if it took any longer. Luckily my school gives grads the opportunity to come back for a refresher mod no matter how long it's been since they graduated. I think it will look really good on your resume. It will show you want to improve you skills. And when you get a job, you won't be rusty because everything will be fresh in your mind again.

    Congrats on starting a family!
