And that works fine, because a limited number of people need scaffold training, and it can afford to cost what it takes to get them in. To get CPR out to "the masses" requires ready access at low cost, with frequent availability. You don't get that by shifting a qualified, experienced nurse to delivering that training. That's going to be expensive, so that is most commonly used for training people with a real expectation to use it (i.e., other medical professionals). That follows the scaffolding training model. If we wanted to stop people from screwing up when putting up quick scaffolding at their home, we'd have to offer that training really inexpensively, and in a short timeframe through places like Home Depot. We could easily gather the information we need from really good scaffolding folks (especially the ones doing the training), and figure out the most important things for an average person to know when creating a scaffold at home, including what materials are best for that 3' or 6' scaffold, and basic dimensions. We could then train some trainers to deliver that information.Well no we dont, we have evidence that a very small number of people have used the skills success fully, we have no idea how many people died needlessly because the training was sub par ?
Your a management consutant, would you really recommend , that life crucial skills are taught by unqualified people.
I've had this argument all my working life, if you want a scaffold traNing course pay a scaffold with training qualifications to give it, don't send Jenny from accounts on a two day scaffold course and expect her to do it. And yes this very arguments For cpr,and defibs
We both know the training from the experience scaffolding guy (if he's also a good trainer) is the better training and will likely produce the better results in the long run. We both also know that people are better off with some decent information, tips, warnings, and suggestions from a well-organized training session based on good analysis and planning, than they would be if they didn't go to it.
