Re: Job duties

From:Louri Caldwell <>


We have different job classifications for certified vs. uncertified 
technicians. The pay is higher for a certified technician but that is the 
only difference between the two.  Acquiring certification is the only way to 
be promoted to the higher level.  However, the duties assigned to both 
descriptions are essentially the same.

Hope this helps.
