Shifter Training 22nd July 2013


  • None


  • Sort out training scripts for MOM/Rogers tasks
  • Book meeting room for class sessions
  • Consider additional PPE training
  • Syllabus for docs and computing info
    • Docs: for web start from IIT page; 2 folders in MLCR; check RA/MS (in pocket with ATW)
    • [[computing-software:ShifterTraining|Computing Shifter Training]]: DAQ KVM; Online KVM; Virtual Desktops; Remote Client Launcher, using eLog (inc. reply and search features); using micewww (inc. getting account); Run Summary Spreadsheet :(
    • (Looking at it, the above seem to be prerequisites for the rest. Suspect that in future sessions it would be best to have those with the Hall tour and MOM talk as a "theoretical" session on the Monday p.m. and then the hands-on on the next day or two.)
    • [[computing-software:DAQ and online reconstruction training]]

  1. A good way to introduce this material is to have a talky bit covering all aspects and then give everyone a go
  2. Needs search - probably best to complete a search during PPS training and then do the beamline bits following. If you have done the computing/DAQ/online reco etc, then it is very nice to set up for a reference run here


  • Book the hall
  • Arrange trainers 1 month in advance
  • Arrange trainees
  • Set up schedule
  • Check RAL/ISIS induction is okay
  • Book meeting rooms
  • Update training documentation for bits which MOM is doing
  • Print training scripts and any other hand outs
