This is for The Architect of the Capitol.

I worked there 22 years on the construction branch now want to move inside. This is the KASO qualification certs you must pass to even get an interview.

1) 8
2) 1
3) 7
4) Id put 2 if it meant say bypass controls to bump a motor to see if its either the motor or some safety holding out the coil voltage.
5) 4 I am paid to troubleshoot problems as they arise and also to do preventative maintenance, so most of the answers about checking your work is your job. But 1 seems ok as well because if I am able to efficiently take calls and repair the issue its a definite plus. Thats just my opinion
