Do I Have to Train People?

People in my facility are getting really pushy when it comes to me training other people. I am at a low level facility, and there seems to be a mentality that once capable, you shall be a trainer. Let me be clear, I came from a military/DOD facility, and I have trained a ton of people. I have no issues training others. I have already had the required FAA class to train people, and I'm set to be on a training team for this year. I guess I'm just looking to see if there's something that says you have to train people once management puts you on the list of trainers.

Well you have to perform job duties as assigned by management.... So if they put you on a training team they're assigning you to be a trainer. If you have an issue with that, talk to your supervisor. Perhaps if you have a legit reason for not wanting to train they will allow that but that's a conversation you need to have either your supervisor. Apparently someone thinks you'd be a good trainer.

Ok, thank you. That's pretty much what I gathered from the national training order. I just wanted to see if there was something I might be missing.

Just do like a grumpy guy from the training team I had... "hey xxx, you want to train xxx today?...."no." Might be different at other places though lol.

I’ve avoided this topic as long as I could.

I even talked myself out of commenting because I figured you l’d get enough abuse without my commentary.

But alas you didn’t so here I f’ing am.

Yes you have to train people. No there is no rule that specifically states you have to but if you don’t help the rest of us replenish our ranks so we can retire, move up, or get a general reprieve from training then you will always be that guy. Your management can also assign work and training is part of that work.

It’s one thing to need some pro time if you’ve been constantly training. It’s another to screw your coworkers over.

I will always call out those who try to talk their way out of training. This is a training job and while we’re still recovering from our baby boomer effect of 80’s firings we need all the training we can get.

I ask for a pro time hour here and there if I’ve had too much- that’s fine. Otherwise, suck it up and teach these mild retards how to lose their ticket just like everyone else.
