Recognizing that you're incompetent is an important first step - but it does not directly imply that you can substantially correct the deficiency.

I'd be willing to be that in the majority of cases you're still going to be better off than if you made no attempt to improve at all. In many cases, that could be the difference between a good employee staying or leaving.

I for one am completely ok with 3D printed parts needing to meet the same safety standards required for their non-printed equivalents. The last thing I need is to take a tire to the face because some bozo with no relevant engineering background decided to stick it to the man by making a new axle for his car on a jumbo sized RepRap. That said, there could be safety standards for home-printed parts along the lines of "this geometry printed using XYZ materials on a printer meeting these minimum specifications is equivalent to the original part", but actually doing the testing may be prohibitively expensive for certain industries.

That's just the problem, the classes were stupid easy. I had a friend make this mistake going into electrical engineering. All of the STEM people from his community college had their credits transfer just fine, but then they promptly got their asses kicked in their first real-college engineering class because the community college didn't actually prepare them sufficiently. Some went as far as to retake some of their CC courses at the 4-year school because they realized how far behind they were. 5-6 year graduation times all around.
