That particular item is an American-ism.  OTOH, I'd expect that there are 
similar programs for professionals that are fairly widely spread.

Shysters in the business have caused a demand for some sort of a testing 
program and certifications for those that pass.  In some states you 
cannot get a business and tax license for your business without it by 
state law. California was one such early adopter, and opening a fly by 
night shop without the certification has been felony there since before 
I was last there when the '70's were wearing down.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that the British (and the EU by 
inference) have a similar program, but probably under an obviously 
British name locally to Britain, and one I might not recognize in print 
or spoken.

Absolutely Lisi. No one knows better than I that there is no one on the 
planet who knows everything.  But collectively, these lists, this one 
included, where everyone knows something, there are enough somebodies 
that the collective IQ is mind boggling.  Way above me, thats for sure. 
I am sorry if I don't say so often enough.

A message that contains a tidbit of information I might find useful at 
some point in the future, gets marked as important just so kmail doesn't 
expire it.  Since I didn't join until early February this year, there 
are at least 25 such messages saved & probably ought to be a hundred 
more because I didn't recognize the importance of it at the time.  That 
is 100% my problem if I let something go by without recognizing it.  

That happens, more frequently than I like to admit, but there it is.
