SWGIT - proposed Section 18

"The Practitioner Must Know How The Application Works

Many software applications and systems provide access to a large suite of components, many of which are not useful to a particular laboratory or for a specific examination. The practitioner must demonstrate knowledge and competency of those components used but does not need to demonstrate it for those components that he/she does not use.

The practitioner must understand the basic principles of the component and the effects of changing settings within the software application. It is important to understand what artifacts are likely to be produced using any particular component of a software application and how to recognize and interpret them. The user must be able to recognize when a component is not functioning correctly and what steps, if any, can be taken to mitigate this."
- SWGIT Guidelines, Section 18

Mastery --- enough said.
