no --- Once a person studies and gets to a certain level only limited growth will occur afterwords. I think continuing ed is wonderfu and take as much as the company will offer or allow me time off to take. Company bennefits more than the tech does. The tech wont bennefit until they recieve immediate raises from the test and as it stands it is difficult to get them to commit to that.
Originally posted by Diceman We have had plenty of discussion about it so none is needed here. Just posting seperate so those of you avoiding the "discussion" will participate. Not saying taking nate test is bad, worthless or you shouldtn't take it mind you.
-Do you think Nate should be enforced at all, somehow??
-Is it really helping anyone other than those making money off it.
NATE is NOT enforced, it is voluntary. Wording a poll to get results when based upon false information is a waste of time dice. Hell looks like you had madeinusa type out the question for you!
No, I have been over here working, Diceman can handle himself I am sure.
When the voters speak in any process, there will always be nasayers.
2. yes, anyone who studies for and passes a test pertinent to his trade will always benefit.
3. I'm not sure, though I do serve on one of the NATE technical committees. Just recently took and passed the RSES CM exam for amusement which probably grandfathers me. I presumably passed the refrigeration CMS exam (awaiting results).
4. does someone think my Roswell comment amusing?
