- One of the issues with the CPF, is the Grandfather clause, it seems unfair, that some such as Nona were grandfathered in, even though they may, at their own discretion, choose to take the class, its their choice, the rest of us have no choice, take it or lose it. I feel most, such as Nona, who are very professional would still take the course, as well as other courses they feel would be useful in helping them become a better professional framer, as would the rest of us. But why should some in a organization such as the PPFA, be excempt, and others are not? Still just a wondering?
It would be similiar to a City passing a ordinance requiring everyone to keep their yards up. You would not be able to let the grass or weeds get over 8" in your yard. Those who are currently living within the city limits, at the time of the passing of the ordinance, would be exempt. You would never be required to keep your yard up, unless you so chose. Not sure most would like that even if you wrote the rules, and then to exempt yourself and others who wrote up the requirements, most folks would be upset.
Their seems to be only one fair way, everyone is required to take the recertification as of Sept 2005, and no one is grandfathered, exempt, etc. If its good for most, it should be good for all. Why should some be grandfathered in, and not others?. We all pay our dues and all should be treated the same....and that's all I have to say about that at the moment.
