Sinatra I’ll through mine in there. I’m registered with the State of North Carolina as a Master Electrician
Mega, in my day, we used to have three grades. Qualifying with 'A' certificate was 'electrician', 'B' cert 'approved electrician' and 'C' cert 'technician'. All that changed over the years and really came to a head when the schemes came into being. Technician went out of the window, except for air con technicians, fire alarm technicians, electronic technicians etc....and even supply meter technicians. (They just love the word)
I would, however, rank Sinatra in the technician grade....one of the smoothest suppliers of sound I've ever heard.

People must be getting bored, resurrecting 2 year old threads. 😉
It's still relevant, though, to some degree. Not like someone bringing up a two year old fault condition and trying to explain how to solve it.;)

Technician grade is still a current JIB/ECS grade.

Yes, to those qualified under todays terms......why remove it from those in the past. I've been qualified to standard for more than 40 years and, according to those that be, have been degraded to 'approved'.
Mind you, as far as I'm concerned, these days, they can stick it where the sun don't shine. It means SFA.

Ah right I'm with you now. Are you saying that C course holders are no longer granted a technician grade ? I thought all legit grades had legacy status.
