TD Training Plan

 

PRE TRAINING:

 

  Get Trainee to install IM service, Macro Program and screen shot program BEFORE you train  
  Install the programs and become familiar with them. 
BE SURE TO TELL THE TRAINEE TO ONLY TEST MACROS IN ROOMS WITH NO PEOPLE IN THEM.  THIS COULD BE CONSIDERED SPAMMING.
