    In my neck of the woods, ISCET holders get laughed at. Everybody here in the "silicon forest" wants to see a diploma.

    I can't speak for other regions of the country.

    I teach a GROL class at the university extension here. Many communications companies require the ticket even if the FCC doesn't. If you plan on working in telecom, it's a real good thing to have.

    Do they still have the first class license also, or did the grol replace it?

    The GROL replaced it...much to the chagrin of us old codgers who had to sweat bullets to get the old first phone! (I still have a second class radiotelegraph license, by the way. I guess that's still highly regarded in some circles. :) )
