    How much of a pain is it to get this one. Company I'm hoping to get hired for asked if I had that one as well. I've got my app. in to go for the MA exam. I've briefly looked at the RI application and it seems alot more detailed to get the RI licenses.
    Like it asks for work history and equipment you have trained on and such. They are also very particular and want things notarized.

    Almost wondering if I should get the MA one, get some time on the machines under my belt then consider the RI one, cause it looks like a pain.

    Seems like everything in RI is a pain.

    I know guys who have operated for 15-20 years and still have trouble getting the RI license. Another reason i hate that state,

    I heard something to the effect that RI may accept CT licenses as well or something. I'm due to take my MA test next week. Would be nice to get more, but if its tough then I'll stick with MA for now.
