For Sure - NFPA Agrees
NFPA C.1.2 Elements National Fire Handbook for Training Telecommunicators.
“Many utilize the procedure of placing a new employee with an experienced worker and allowing the new employee to watch over his or her shoulder to learn the job. Under these conditions, the process has only limited success at best. Often it leaves the employer and employee dissatisfied with the outcome.
The employee feels apprehension from being overwhelmed with too many sensory stimuli of new duties and new people. It is a human characteristic to attempt to absorb the new environment, but it can be distracting from the task at hand. He or she might also feel apprehension about taking too long to become “productive.”
