Last night, pdb and I were discussing the unsafe training at Lethal Weapons Academy in Erie, PA, when I had the idea of a bingo card to assist in spotting bad training. With pdb’s help, I put one together. Here it is.
Take this card with you to your class. Keep in mind that use of one or even several phrases on the card isn’t necessarily indicative of poor training, but if you find that more than a third of the boxes are checked, or you get a complete line, you need to be looking for an exit. Maybe just leave at the lunch break and not come back.
You can also use this card to weed out crappy trainers just by looking at course descriptions online. Give it a try!
