Well, I'll stick with my idea. Another "pro" degree would be a JD who graduates with no responsibilities or ethical requirements. It is the bar association and being sworn in by the courts that create that.
The idea another qualified individual cannot adjust/treat a patient is an abomination. It is a trade association that goes beyond the pale to protect members using outlandish laws they lobbied for. State licensing is mostly a joke. They license barbers and all sorts of trades that restrict competition.
So when a person moves all the way across Canada, you are telling me he must travel all the way back to get a needed adjustment? How about the one that find the audiologist is incompetent? I suppose he'll be out another $6000 for the same aids so someone else can fit them?
P.S. What is your profession? Just curious.
