Industry Standards: For years the industry standard for equipment operator training was, at best, to sit through a couple of hours of classroom instruction, watch a video of someone else's operations, and take a 20 or 25 question evaluation, and now you are an operator. This type of training has never been appropriate to ensure that a competent understanding had been reached by the operators.
