Had a guy from the state come in for a visit yesterday. His job is to assess trade competencies for the state and apply them to the various trade classes. He wanted my input as to whether or not we should be using the PHCC as the base for testing and qualifications. Normally I would have gone off on my usual rant about the worthless bastards but I thought I might be better to show some restraint and be non-committal on the issue. So anyway, what do you guys think? If someone were to come up with a standardized skill set for plumbers, should it be the PHCC? or should we come up with our own criteria? I know the PHCC is supposed to be the organization that represents us, but in my opinion it has been years since that has been true.
