Can only speak based on my own experiences
with that being said
every shop i have worked at has had a pecking order and the new guy is never left unsupervised
same at my shop whenever i got a new tech i am always watching him until he proves he can work without supervision
What happened was, A person would clean a vehicle. BUSTED. The owner would now CLAIM I DIDN'T KNOW. So the shop would get off.
Now, in today's world, the owner of the shop must Approve of the person's name being in the machine (I think they have even got lacks on that)
The deal was with BOTH having to sign it, there was no I DIDN'T KNOW. They had a signature of the guy doing the smog and the guy who the OWNER said was good.
The owner of the shop had to sign off, saying YES I AM RESPONSIBLE.
Interesting that when you TELL the TRUTH, people get upset. Plus some people can NEVER admit when they are WRONG.
For the most part I find most inspectors learn enough to pass the state test then, learn as they go in the field

I've got a brochure from a public adjuster doing an insurance check over for me on my house. It says that they must pass a state course, be fingerprinted, and background checked, and be bonded for $50K, and most importantly-Apprentice under another licensed public adjuster for an entire year.
Our current state's policy of as soon as an inspector passes their test- they're Insta Star ready with ZERO experience.
I do not use the term technician when describing an inspector.
