teeheehee I think I'm the oldest one here now, except for the " free energy off powerlines " poster:-) 48 and feeling it.
well I think that comment about learning more after you get licensed is not all that healthy.I guess in Canada things are a little different, if you can through a Dynamo onto the Falls and get free energy while picnicking there.
the licensing agency here in nyc (neuyauksittee~ssparkling:) isn't really keen on the subject either, it's a requisite and i don't know if we (I) can get a waiver based on experience as i thought, they stress "supervised work" for several years to qualify you for the License Exam., it was 200$, probably up to 400$ since bluemberg's in office.
i hope that signed affidavits from current and past cleintele will make a break somehow, but stick to the term if you are already in an appreticeship, it will ease becoming independent in a shorter time.
Experience comes with time, care and gettoitiveness.
