It is recommended that each District and Resident Engineer periodically assess the need for training of individuals and make arrangements to provide needed training during the construction "off season".

One word of caution, however. Training is not recommended as a method of "making work" or "keeping busy". Rather, a sincere effort should be made to increase the employee's understanding of specific work assignments and to improve techniques concerning these assignments.

Training should be a continuous, ongoing activity. Training in specific subjects can be conducted in the Resident Office by any qualified employee and at almost any time. Training need not be organized in a formal classroom or field set up in order to be effective. Ideally, all employees who have been with the Department for as long as 2 or 3 years will have had some training, formal or informal, in all of the various inspection and surveying tasks that are routinely performed by Resident Engineer personnel.
