Alldata skill levels

When using the parts and labor function of Alldata, they list 3 skill levels A - B - C or highly skilled moderately skilled low skilled.
Is there any way to correlate these skill levels into real world factors such as
amount of training / certifications number of years in service pay range i.e. what is the approx pay range for highly skilled versus low skills.
Just curious.... I admire alldata's attempt to simplify skill levels to A-B-C but I don't think it's as easy as... well ABC.
Thanks in advance !!

A = Certified mechanic with at least 10 years of work experience on the make in question. With all the proper tools and parts access.
B = Good technician that has 5-10 years working on many makes, Has the proper tools but may not work on just the brand in question.
C = The guy who just moved out from under the lube rack and wants to advance up. May have the tools but not the practical experience or training.

For your backyard mechanic:
A = 2-4 of beer, a full weekend, lots of bandaids, lots of cursing, maybe a buddy or two and a 5 lbs hammer required. Be sure you don't need your car for a few days.
B = A dozen beer, a full day, some bandaids, some cursing and a 1 lbs hammer required. Allow an extra day of lost use of vehicle.
C = A beer or two, an evening and a 32oz hammer required. Be prepared to be late for work the next day.

Thanks Steve..... this helps put things into their proper perspective... I would imagine a lot of the chain and franchise shops have mostly B's and C's, whereas dealers, specialty and top notch shops which provide or emphasize training would have more A's and B's. Meanwhile the chain lube / brake /tire shops are mostly C's with a few B's thrown in just in case..... Would this be a somewhat accurate statement ???
Thx

Pretty close. The trick is finding a local shop that has the top end folks in it.
