To truly become an expert, a technician must put in 10,000 hours. However, what happens when technology is evolving so fast that it becomes difficult for technicians to gain proficiency? The obvious solution is to simplify copper testing. When technicians are provided with sophisticated yet easy-to-use tools and test sets, they are able to make expert decisions with less expertise, while eliminating the risk of misinterpretation. Plus, by integrating training into testing, technicians learn while on the job.
