The last Training Cadre blog Post (anyone who has the link can access this blog. I will leave it up for as long as it is practical to keep it)

(For those who are missing "All the Stories" I just found this Link) For some unknown reason, this link works perfectly sometimes and sometimes not at all!

Farewell Old Friend
The purpose of the Training Cadre was to standardize the training so that all shifts would get the same training. Originally, the training was put on the computer in room 12. Trainers on each shift had to go to that computer to prepare for their shift. 

In June of 2015, we started this blog so that trainers and anyone else could access this training with any device connected to the internet. As I looked at some of the early presentations, I noticed that a few of the links no longer work because the person who created them had deleted the original. It has been fun, and I have learned a lot and hope that you have too! (This was my first and so far, only attempt at blogging,) 

Hello New Friend
I would like to thank all members of the Cadre, past, and present, for their dedication and hard work! (You are the BEST!)

Because of the short month, each shift will have the opportunity to look at the list of training opportunities below and choose the items which meet your needs on your shift!
