"Every 483 Observation Has A Training Component"
“Every 483 observation has a training component.” Truer words have never been spoken—I only wish it was me who said them.

Others don’t necessarily share that bias, being that often training isn’t done well, isn’t timely or effective, isn’t always meaningful. I’ve heard the arguments and can even agree with some of them. But let’s set that aside for now and look at what the inspector meant.
