A friend of mine, who will remain nameless, is taking pole climbing right now. She's an engineer. The really funny part is it's web based. Never heard of anyone ever learning how to climb a pole from web based training before. Even she thinks it's a big joke.
I also had an opportunity to check out the maintenance training for the managers taking positions in the test centers. It's all theory! Theory is nice if you wanna teach...won't help with normal daily use.
