Users need to be trained and "checked out" before they can utilize the machines solo during day and evening hours. Richard White will evaluate all users for proficiency on the specific instrument according to a predetermined checklist. This listing will be made available to users, as those proficient can train each other as well. However, all new users will have to go through a final check out with Richard, regardless of who trained
