From the 13th century, in some places, the term journeyman was used to describe someone who had completed their apprenticeship in a trade and thus having been accepted into a guild.

He was entitled to earn a salary and typically worked from dawn to dusk, six days a week and lived in his master's home.

To advance to master he must have produced a masterpiece and must have used his own tools, raw materials and time in order to produce this work. This masterpiece would then needed to be accepted by the master of the guild and then he would be accepted so long as the area would sustain another master economically.
