Here in the UK the picture is a bit different - perhaps it's because courses etc in TW have been few and far between (getting better). The ISTC (equivalent to STC) actively encourages members to 'get qualified' . As part of this process they have been involved in the creation of NVQs (National Vocational Awards) in TW which are recognised across Europe. Although the driving force has been the ISTC the certification is done by an external body. Process involved going to those that use TWer (industry), asking what they saw as a requirement from TWers and progressed from there. I won't go into all the details but anyone who's interested can check on the ISTC web site (search for NVQ) at:
