    This link is for R2. You can download the standard and it details the process for certifying a facility.

    This is a dumb question, but I wonder: are there any types of designations that might not be up to R2 / e-stewards "certification" level, but maybe sound good on a card or other advertising? If so, though it doesn't cover the clients who mandate R2, maybe hit a slightly higher threshold? I'm thinking along the lines of some insurance agents and/or financial planners who have a series of "letters" behind their name reflecting various licensing and training they have obtained.

    One simple example is the basic freon removal training (as I understand it, cheap & online). Then you have that basic "certification" for freon removal. What other opportunities might exist for things like that which we could add to our resumes? I wonder if any recycling organizations (nonprofits?), community colleges / tech schools, etc. might have "designations" they can provide if you take a class or something?

    Maybe SMF can start awarding designations - what higher authority for us, after all? MSW might stand for Masters in Social Work for some folks....here it's a Master in Scrap Work. Doctorates, advanced certifications, etc ..... I jest (somewhat), but see where I'm headed with this?

    Anyway, at the level I'm at, I'm a LONG way off from ever acquiring R2...but who knows what the future holds? I'm just thinking in the near term about low (or relatively low) cost alternatives.

    Sorry a little off topic but have you seen that YouTube video where something dreamer just gets a hammer and knocks the tube off of the crt. Then tells everyone to just scrap the class?
    Here's the link

    I'm not saying to do this. But here is a good example of what NOT to do.

    I could see if he is getting like $50 worth of metals (risk/reward). But for like $4-5 worth of metals maybe for 30+ minutes of work, mess, and hazard to your health? No thanks.

    Hilarious video. My favourite part was where he was swinging at the tube with his eyes covered. Imagine the disappointment of the people who, after watching this video, try to sell the "motherboards" and "magnesium" from TVs.
