> Yes, it's a requirement.

Ah well, in that case if it's a requirement to which you agreed in contract then fair enough: You've got to get (because you agreed to do so).

Also, since you're a self-employed contractor, training and certification is something you would normally have to pay for yourself, isn't it. It's not like being an employee where you could reasonably expect your employer to pay for it.

This is why contractors' daily rates are so much higher than salaried employees; contractors have substantially higher costs since they are a self-employed business.

Overall it seems to me: Why complain? You'll be getting a tick box skill that will increase your daily rate for the next contract.
