Fighting for a self certifying scheme for carpenters/joiners in the UK.

I'm a carpenter of nearly ten years, I've worked hard and built invaluable nowledge of my trade which you can't just buy in a 3 month quick fire course to acquire the same certification as me and earn the equivalent but 9 years off.
Plumbers can aquire 'gas safe', electricians 'part p' registered, which both come under a self certification scheme which complies with building regulations.
Some Carpenters and self proclaimed carpenters all over the country are driving standards very low with the poor demonstration of craftsmanship and compromising structural integrity of buildings and astetic visual perseptions of oyr country with poor levels of craftsmenship. Too many businessnem undercutting proffesiinals for profit ocer quality, all while like minded good skilled trades men like myself are being undercut by people of far less ability and structural integrity. I feel if there were a self certifying scheme which compelled potential builders, organisations/businesses or your every day domestic customer to look for, in the form of a self certification scheme only for those that can demonstrate a comprehensive understanding, we could lift skill quality, appoint responsibility and promote competence into a self certifying scheme. We could reshape the building industry to the piniccle of world standards.. I believe it is necessary that we approach a self awarding certification scheme, one which delegates a level of skill of craftsmanship and a level of competence working around building regulations and British standards for carpenters. It is well known that the carpenters job requires the most versatile of skills and one which needs a better representation of our competence which is on par with gas safe and recognised by building control offices across the country.
I hope to aquire support and help drive up standards and protect those who seek to excel, those who deserve to be recognised, those who intend to supply an adequate level of craftsmanship and competence and be financially protected from rogue tradesman all at the same time as driving up the construction prowess of this country.
Join my mission to make our voices heard!! Make a difference and join the fight.
