    I believe that a locator is only as good as the challenges that they’ve faced and overcome as locators. I’ve been locating for over 20 years and it seems that my career has been nothing but a training course. Technologies are always changing, laws and standards are constantly developing or changing and to say that I know everything about everything would be a lie. If a qualification or certification means I know everything about everything than I believe it would be as well. A person can take training to be qualified, certified or even "bone a fied" but it is still ultimately up to he employer or customer to determine if the person or company is competent to perform the job. These certificates are “certified documentation of training and testing and should be weighed as such.
