    Its great you may want to test but at this point its likely a waste of time and energy. So you get some help with the specific question not sure how it would help.
    I had a guy tell me he is a certified mig welder about 3 times, I finally asked where. As it turns out it was in a class he vaguely remembers 30 yrs ago in high school, he figures he is still some kind of certified welder.
    No one asks me anymore but I do have an answer which is usually from someone don't know anyway but I usually say I certified about 20 times over the years.
    It normally only applies to the job its on, there may be some blanket stuff in some of the area trades for general work but for the beginner it doesnt really apply in a general fashion athough we got a couple guys here that flash it past their insurance co's in lieu of a general contractors and a lot of people wouldn't know the difference including some agents and procurement at plants.
