Pointing the way

Quite a lot of the training that we do happens because experienced members of the crew spend time with less experienced crewmembers on exercise and talk them through things. Being a teacher this is something that I particularly enjoy. I enjoy taking seemingly complex tasks and breaking them down into simple steps and getting that information across to someone else. And the funny thing is, this is often the best way to learn, having a peer as instructor is often (in my experience) much more successful than having a 'proper' instructor. Perhaps it's just a matter of learning styles?

Anyway, here I am pointing something out to Chad. As ever he is being kind enough to humour me and pretend to be interested!
