Historical Tool Certification Names to Tool Species

From Artisan's Asylum

Jump to: navigation, search

This table maps tool certification names, as originally defined in member_app, to current tool species names, as defined in this wiki. The intent is to allow us to figure out, given some old piece of paper or old data in member_app, which current tool species was intended by a particular certification signoff from before we used a consistent set of tool species names.

If a category is marked "Obsolete", this means that any testing that has already taken place in that category is moot and will be replaced by an entirely different set of training. This mostly describes old E&R certs.

This page is now frozen. The member_app remapping took place after the desk closed on 9/1/2013. If un-entered certs are found (such as on old paperwork), they should be entered using the new names. [The lasercutter is a special case; for the moment, it's being treated in member_app as "obsolete"; if and when we get a new one, anyone who was previously trained on it will be retrained for free on the new one, and we'll make some appropriate (and probably more-specific) tool species for that training.]
