Insetad of looking at this as a bad idea, think of it as improving your knowledge and protecting your job. If your company requires licensed Engineers (Always a good idea), then less people are qualified to do it.

You benifit as your value will increase, the company values as their insurance costs will go down, and the community values it as your operation becomes safer.

I live in Nebraska and most of the boilers are located in Omaha where Licensed Operators are required. More people are hurt each year in boiler accidents outstate as no license is required.

You will loose a little but everyone will come out ahead in the long run.
