This is a great new approach to obtainig the CWNE certification filling a much deeper and broader body knowledge. If I understand the new dates correctly as follows:
October 1, 2010 - New CWNE certification requirement in effect (requires passing CWAP and other exams, etc.)
January 1, 2011 - CWAP (PWO-270) Exam available
Does this mean it is not possible for any new CWNEs to emerge during the last 3 months of 2010?
