The Participant Guide filled a 2-inch ring binder and each trainee kept it as a reference. Trainees now knew the expert from HQ that they could contact with questions. The first class was scheduled for August 2010

11 First Class Fifteen trainees, including new, recent, and experienced supervisors and a superintendent (next higher level) Training topics and time spent on them was modified based on Pilot No closed circuit TV Same outcome as Pilot District O&M Managers requested the class be held at least twice a year

12 Ongoing Next class was January 2011 Same outcome Operations works with HR and instructors to keep course content current. HR works with instructors to prepare updated materials. Upcoming Class July 26-28, 2011
