Why do you want to?

The standard approach in GURPS is to treat a "profession" as a template. And a template routinely includes at least a couple of primary skills (things the practitioner needs to be quite good at), several secondary skills (things that require basic professional competence), and some background skills (things some who pursues that profession would be exposed to, learned at a basic level). That defines, not a single uniform level of competence, but a range of different competences that define the "profession" in some detail. It seems that you dislike that approach, but I'm not sure why.
