Michigans continued competency scam and renewing my builders license
So i attend the 3 hour class today to show I still understand how to build a house which Ive been doing every day for the past 20 years and have not forgot since yesterday. I go into this with a positive attitude. Maybe I'll learn something new. I get coffee and donuts sit there falling asleep for 3 hours and I have to take a test on what was discussed. All the test material is written on the board in the front of the room which I am told I can use if needed. So I copy everything directly off board onto test and get a certificate of completion. What a joke. It is just for the money. There is no continued competency. They should just raise the price of renewal to $460 and not waste my time and try to disguise it. But I guess that extra money they get will cover the cost creating more un-needed govt jobs.
