I recently found out my boss will be closing the company. I should have my 8,000 hours late this year but am only in my 3rd year of classes. Currently I'm just an apprentice but could take the 02 exam at anytime. It seems as though doing so would put me in a better position for my upcoming job hunt but I'm curious if there are any drawbacks to going that route if the end goal is to get my 01 card. Sure it's an extra test, so a bit of time and money over and above what it would be to hold out but that's not not a major concern for me. Thanks in advance for any insight you folks may have.
