From Pipefitters to Pilots, Certifications Are A Good Thing
If one were to interview someone at random about what profession or skill they’d really like to possess, the answers given would be as unique as snowflakes. Indeed, when one really sits down and thinks about it, the sheer number of professions in the world is astounding! An underlying theme among many of them is that they require potential candidates to take, and pass, competency examinations in order to become certified. After many hours of training and preparation, these exams can be written or practical, usually featuring a minimum standard by which someone is considered proficient, and therefore capable of being called a professional in a given field. This, of course, is a good thing because in many instances, human lives and property are at risk, making the need for proficient, skilled, and certified candidates even more paramount.
The same holds true for professionals seeking to become certified in certain trades. They begin as registered apprentices, enduring the rigor of hundreds of classroom instruction hours and thousands of on-the-job training hours. Once an apprentice completes his or her course of study, that individual is considered a journeyman. This refers to individuals who have completed their apprenticeship training, and are fully educated in their trade or craft, but are not yet considered a master. After spending some time as a journeyman, that individual has the option to take their Master’s exam.

Make no mistake, the road from apprentice to master is difficult by design.
