Expand interim license
I would like to see the board change the requirements and expectations for an interim license so that anybody working under the direct supervision of a licensee can be disciplined for bad behavior. Right now, only the direct supervisor would get in trouble if an unlicensed person did something wrong. If every person who was working under a direct supervisor was allowed to apply for an interim license, then that person would also be held accountable to his work. I would get rid of the temporary period to get a license so that it is a permanent feature of the regulations for those that want to work in this industry. In other words, operators, installers, OSEs, waterworks, and wastewater works operators could all apply for an interim license, work under the direct supervision of a licensee, and then apply for a regular license when they qualify. This allowance would help the board to verify someone's experience because they would hold the interim license for a certain period of time before getting a regular license.
