The number of people who used Tech to obtain VK Adv was small, the number i heard thrown about was 10. 10 out of 10,000 licenses is not statistically significant. And as soon as ACMA was made aware of this, they reviewed it and made tech the equal of foundation. At the time, you had to travel to the USA and sit the exams there as there were no VK US exams. So someone spend upwards of 5 grand to backdoor a license that costs what $300 to do and sit here. Only the truly desperate would go to such extreme lengths to cheat a system that for the most part is not all that hard. What is missing in the VK system are the online study tools to allow people to study in their own time at their own pace. Oh there are some books that I found are as good as useless and that is about it unless you have the time to sit in a class at a club. Something many people dont. Most of my study and research time is done after 9pm at night while im lying in bed. Something no club can cater for LOL. Hobbies fit in and around my life, I have no desire to change my life just to suit my hobby. I am not the kind of guy who is going to walk to school uphill both ways in the snow with no shoes. I hope you get well soon OM.
