We’ve added two abilities over the past couple of meeting to help relieve this problem:
A. We have worked on a Part A online to lighten the workload on the teaches and enable members to begin the training and shorten the time spent in classes.
B. We have officially ok’d trainers who have taken train the trainers class to check people out at anytime.
But unfortunately it really does come down to volunteer time and those who are knowledgeable enough to train people on the machine; this is something we are still short on.
The best thing to do is to ask specifically and to explicitly work with those that do teach the classes to set something up. Remember though that these members are being very generous with their time, they are not obligated to do anything; so treat them accordingly.
