    You might ask yourself how I could possibly know something like that. It isn't me who is fixaed with Joe te Plumber.

    I apologize, I always thought certificate and license meant the same thing.
    Nope.

    you can get into major legal trouble. now you can work under a certified plumber and in fact it is required to get your license.

    most state agencies require you to be a certified plumber regardless.
    So in some states having a license to be a plumber is the same thing as being a certified plumber? If you are a certified, trained plumber, why would you need a license to practice your trade?

    Apparently the Air Force disagrees with you on this plumbing thing. Take your argument to them.

    Would you have heard of Joe the Plumber if it wasn't fr his question period with Obama? Why a thread about someone who has been out of the spotlight for several years? What iis it about Joe the Plumber that attracts you so much?

    In fact I don't know what a Plumbers license is, but I do know what a Plumbers certificate is. Whether or not Joe The Plumber is licensed or certified depends on those who care enough to make the inquires. You still seem obsessed with the man, despite the intervening years since his conversation with Barrack ("This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.) Obama.

    Who cares? If you feel he was not qualified then you should take it up with the Air Force. We certainly don't want sloppy National Security.

    I said nothing about the AF. I said The Guy Not Named Joe is not a plumber

    see if you can solve your own question:
    So in some states having a license to be a physician is the same thing as being a certified medical practitioner? If you are a certified, trained doctor, why would you need a license to practice medicine?

    most states require that if you are a certified plumber that you register with the state. if you are not a licensed certified plumber you can get into major trouble legally if you try and do a plumbing job on your own. if you want to work as a plumber on your own you need to be licensed.

    licensed/certified mean the same thing.

    you have to have at least a journeyman's license before you can break out on your own. most states require that you register as a licensed plumber though. I know here in FL you have to. they are very strict about it. in fact they are over the top about it. if you get caught doing work without being registered you can be fined and kicked off the job site.
