For me personally I think it would just feel like more to maintain. I live in different states for different seasons and that would just end up costing a lot. For example, I am a nationally certified EMT but there are just a few states that don’t support the National certification. I just moved to Utah and I need to get certified (in the state now) all over again. It’s costing me a lot of money and it’s the exact same information.
I can defiantly see your point on all the benefits. I agree with you that our industry is so exploited with all sorts of crazy information out there. Having some kind of standard would be really nice. Maybe even something that would eliminate the need to get our CECs all the time. A standard that says “I passes this so I KNOW what I’m doing”
