You don't need Mentor AND Trainee - Those both have access to trainee forums. So there's another gone.
@Dan is it possible to have read only access to Trainee, if you're not actually a Trainee or a Mentor? I've long thought this would be good as every day's a school day, so to speak.

No. It's a private forum. The guys in there are discussing tests and results. We don't want that public or even read by those who it doesn't apply to.

Fully understand this shouldn't be visible to the public, but possibly for members with Arms access or above?

No I don't think the guys training in there want people to know what they're asking in there.

If you are training, apply for access.

We could end up showing people how to carry out works who have just got 50 posts to the forum and proved they're a business.

We actually check the trainees in there to make sure they're legit. They even lose access once their course ends.

The only problem Tony is we dont want the wrong people having access, I dont me you by that comment but the trainee forum is a safe haven where trainees can post things in there without worrying about any snotty comments or sarcasm which is a good thing be cause we are trying to encourage them to come out of their shells.
But any long standing member can apply for access and it would be considered by staff.
Obviously they would need the right credentials...
Good history on here

As I trainee I wouldn't object to those experienced and established in the trade (own biz for X years, reputable, good history of helping on forum, got in to the trade by either college/apprenticeship (I would be wary of electrical trainee course, just because compared with college/apprenticeship route, there could be considerably less time 'on the tools' so to speak - that is to say making circuits, doing tests, doing changes, albeit in a controlled environment)

Who decides who is 'Mentor' material I in the hands of the site team obviously but I'd like to think they've got a good feel for frequent members

@GMES thanks for explaining that. I guess I only thought about it as an idea, as my experience has always been with temporary event power, which is fairly niche and since joining the forum I've learned loads about the more traditional disciplines and broadened my knowledge that way. Cheers anyway :)
