Wtf is wrong with additional training OF ANY KIND?? When I worked at Lowe's, we had training all the time. So do hospitals and a myriad of other places.

If you work for a company that does not train you properly, does not keep up with new techniques, and does not prepare you for what may come your way, etc., you're liable to be fired for not keeping up with the changes (we know this, don't we SC?)

These officers want to learn new and relevant procedures in order to possibly SAVE YOUR LIFE SOMEDAY!!

I hate you trollers.
