I have run a few races with the administrative beast in regards to training. Nothing like being in court over aspects of training to get one to pay attention to administration.
I developed a matrix by which to administratively evaluate training efforts with an eye toward future oversight/second guessing. One important aspect is how your training is viewed, literally, in a photographic record. In this instance, visible exposure of the throat would be enough to call a cease fire until that potential training danger was resolved.
Getting a few helmet dents over training issues is one good way to evaluate what you do and how you do it, then apply that to your staff and monitor their performance. The better ones are not afraid of talking about their performance, so thanks for this opportunity.
