Why when there is a review why do things have to effectively stop? If you look at (“review”) what you do on the squadron, do you stop doing things?
The problem here seems to be, those reviewing what’s done aren’t volunteers with limited time to fulfil whatever comes out and if it requires “trainers” to " retrain" and the new ‘courses’ aren’t immediately available, it just extends the time to get the activity up and running, again. I’m not sure if you remember what happened with AT, but when the news initially broke it didn’t go down well, but we were given time to get qualified/convert. If that had happened like FMS has it would have had a much more devastating effect at the time on the ATC, given it would have affected DofE expeditions. Imagine no DofE expeds due to stiff system, there would be much consternation as to how management could allow it.
What I have said is allow those already qualified under the old new FMS system to carry on as happened with AT in the early 00s with a time limit to meet the new requirements. The irony is what caused the FMS problems could happen anywhere, anytime and no amount of training and processes can prevent it.
What is needed is pragmatism not dogmatism. People however seem to be happy with dogmatism.
