When I took the job, it was supposed to be part time, and I was supposed to be training other trainers.
A couple of weeks in, we got a new person in charge of instructors and that didn’t fit with him plans.
He pushed at me to be a regular instructor and be full time, but at the end of each day, I couldn’t see out of my right eye and my weight loss stalled.
There is a reason to have junior college and college programs to teach technology.
Learning technology for the first time takes a lot of time of reflection. 5 1/2 months - 40 hours a week is too intense both for students and for instructors.
It doesn’t allow enough time for homework or reflection. It also doesn’t allow instructors enough reflection and adaption time.
I don’t recommend boot camps for either the instructor or for the student. Especially after living it for a few months.
