Platinum Level Idea From Leo

From Leo:


One thought Amos had about the Platinum level certification: Double-blind review of a shop’s work. As part of the accreditation process, the shop submits 10-12 good photos. The file is then reviewed by someone (perhaps a committee of someones) who assess to ensure that the work being done is of platinum level, perhaps a rating scale, 1-100; 40 being the minimum for basic, and 50-60 being silver, 70-80 being gold and 90-100 being platinum. The photos and work would be evaluated for different areas: complexity, attention to detail, neatness of fabrication, consistency, finish quality, etc.  The scores in the categories would be added together and that would be the score for the shop. For instance if a shop scored 75, they could complete modules and testing required and become a silver, then gold shop, and even if they complete all the modules they couldn’t become platinum without being reevaluated.

Amos included his suggested costs: $395 for basic. $195 for each additional level, $880 for platinum. Hopefully we could keep the module cost lower (perhaps $50 including the study guide and 1 session of testing).
