1) Someone who has studied to learn a craft, either through formal
instruction or autodidacticly. Formal instruction can be in the form of
apprenticeship / real work experience, workshops, internships. The ability
to actually "work" should play a role. (How would we differentiate
craftsman from artisan?)
2) Continues on the basis that learning is a lifelong process (constant
refreshing of skills and theoretical knowledge.
3) Works to the highest appropriate standards and pushes self to next
4) Willing and able to pass on their skills.
I guess a consummate professional.
Anyone else want to modify, add... destroy.
