Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Having a certification does not guarantee full competence in any field. However, a person who lacks the ability or persistence to pass the certification requirements is almost certainly not fully competent.
In other words, certification is a necessary but not sufficient condition for competence.
It is absurd to suggest that licenses and training have little correlation with competence. It is simply not true. The correlation is not 100% perfect, but it is a very strong correlation.
Well at least on this point we fully agree
