user certification - education and demonstrated competency
considering that a "New TRA" may have a scope which includes rocketry
beyond commercial or 'EX' as practiced by the current TRA, we need to
examine what role user certification should play.
is revision of NFPA 1127 to remove a user certification requirement
desirable or feasible? Are there any other regulatory requirements for
user certification outside of the NFPA?
do limits on member activities based on certification level have a
bearing on insurance premiums? because of a perceived safety risk?
what about the probability of payout if the organization is
self-insured? would it increase if users were not certified? is this
based on statistical experience, or does such data not exist? If not,
future experience provide sufficient data to uphold a re-evaluation of
or was certification mandated because of some percieved advantage to a
launches overall safety? Was this a subjective judgement or otherwise
how what objective information was used to reach that conclusion? Has
experience upheld that assessment?
if desireable, how might user certification be revised to address a
wider scope of rocketry activities?
