Why would you want to exempt examination of an apprentice before they become a journeyman? That examination shows us if this individual is up to speed and is ready for this earned title as a journeyman. Not everybody is equal in their education. Some pick it up quick and some do not. Examinations is what makes us better and want to succeed for are future in the trade. Would you want a lawyer who didn't pass the bar or a surgeon that didn't pass their exam's. Our trades are just as important than the previous that I stated. I am opposed.
