JW Card State Test

To whom it may concern,

Not all schools/teachers are created equal. If we are going to require Journeyman of all trades, (especially Gas and Electrical) to have a licence it make no sense not to make them take a test no matter what Apprenticeship they attended. If fact if the localites did there job and actually checked to see if there is a Journeyman on every job then maybe we would have better installs around the region. No one from the counties or state ever asked me for my card in 30 years, in other states that is a common occurrence.

Thank You,
