[QUOTE=WVbeekeeper;279204][url]. First you have to be an apprentice, then a journeymen,
then a master. Maybe you can just take the master's exam without going
through the other levels but I don't know if you can.
I'm not aware of any levels in the EAS program. I believe there are only the four MB exams. As stated by dickm, one must meet a number of minimum qualifications (including college level courses), be recommended, then pass the exams. You can retake sections of the exam in successive years if you fail. Once you pass a section, you do not have to retake it. As someone said above, the written and lab exams are way challenging.
