Inventory has been wrapped up and with the holidays over we are ready to resume a normal schedule around here... whatever that is. This past week we had two trainees learning on scissor and clipper blade sharpening. One of our trainees was learning everything for the first time and going back home to start day one of her business. Our other trainee had been sharpening for a while but had some holes he wanted to fill in with a day of training.
For our trainee that had been sharpening already, his training was valuable for him right away when he got home. The value for him, was that for a full day he was able to describe his problems, show us what he was doing, and be trained how to correct the problem. After he had returned home he double how many blades he sharpened in an hour, and he knew how to fix the blades that weren't working properly. In the course of a week he went from dreading a clipper blade pick up to encouraging people to leave them with him.
Our brand new sharpener trainee left with a good grasp on getting her business started and the skills needed to achieve that. After seeing how things worked with the other trainee she is writing down questions and observations as time goes on and looking to come back in the future to fill the holes she may have.
