The practical portion of the training covers

The practical portion of the training will be given at various times during the week. Since we only have
access to the Hall during Wednesday maintenance days, we will offer a PPS tutorial on Wednesdays. This will teach
the shifter about controlled access routines and give them some practice.
Beamline training (Target, Decay solenoid, Beamline magnets and Beamstop) will usually be given by the BLOC on
Thursday mornings.
Control room operations (C&M, DAQ, Online Monitoring, Online Reconstruction and the datamover) will be given by a control room operations trainer also on Thursdays.

After each step of the training, the trainer will inform the MOM and the trainee's records on CHEESE will be updated.
