Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
I don't agree with you and I think that what you say does not have much sense. If it was so we would have not trained and qualified professional engineers, Doctors, Airplanes pilots, Architects or Sea Captains. We would only have handy men in all professions.
I think Takefive nailed it when he said: "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".
OK, let's just not agree. Next topic
