Has anything really got any better in the industry or are the powers to be just kidding themselves? 

We have some options for change so give us your feedback so we know which direction to push. Make comment and generate discussion and change.

Letters to the Editor show practitioners are getting restless.

The Federation is right. It's 40 years since the craftsman qualification was implemented and there  still isn't a pathway to get qualified. Look at how many apprenticeships schemes there have been in that time. There have been inquiries into the Board, the ITO was caught out double dipping. There has been retrospective legislation implemented to keep unlawfully taken money. We have had money wasted by the PGD Board on overseas trips and what about all the money the industry spent for a computer scheme for gas certification only for it to be shelved.  And to cap it all off it looks like the entire process is starting again.  There is not accountability to the industry so that needs to change.
