Grades range between 0 and 10, 5 being the passing mark. However, since grading practice differs amongst awarding institutions, a descriptive mark is used, which is more or less universal throughout Greece. For example, in the National Technical University of Athens, a grade in the diploma between 5 and is "good" (καλώς), a grade between and is "very good" (λίαν καλώς) and a grade of or more is "excellent" (άριστα).  In the University of Patras  the ranges are from 5 to (good), from to (very good) and from to 10 (excellent).
If you have already been trained in Static-99 or Static-99R prior to the release of the 2016 version of the coding manual, we strongly recommend you obtain training on the updates to this coding manual, as there are many non-trivial changes (some of which may be missed if not pointed out by a trainer). This does not require a new full-day training on the scale (although in some cases a full training may be helpful as a refresher). Minimally, to be consistent with our recommendation, we suggest a half-day training specifically highlighting what is new in the coding manual (as well as reading the new manual in full, and referring to it often). Such a training (called a Booster training) is offered online on-demand by the Global Institute of Forensic Research for $65, with availability for some CE credits (see below). You can also obtain a similar training from a certified Static-99R trainer (see note above that this trainer should be re-certified on the new manual). Additional training opportunities ( ., with practice cases) may be helpful in consolidating and applying the new material, but should be considered optional.
