You Can’t Rush Greatness

Despite what you see or hear from those around you, the truth of the matter is you can’t rush greatness. James Marshall Hendrix didn’t become the Jimi Hendrix we remember today a mere 10 minutes after picking up a guitar for the first time. You actually can’t rush anything and expect a modicum of quality or competence to result. The same holds true for professionals seeking to become certified in the trades.


The journey begins as registered apprentices. These individuals endure the rigor of hundreds of classroom instruction hours and thousands of on-the-job training hours. Once an apprentice completes the required course of study, that individual is considered a journeyman, someone who is fully educated in their trade or craft but are not yet considered masters. After spending some time as a journeyman, that individual has the option to take the Master’s exam.

Understandably, the road from apprentice to master is difficult by design. The amount of training, preparation, and certification these individuals are required to endure is there to ensure that only the best earn the right to be called a master.
