Here's a good test for the veteran pump operators. Go to the panel then blindfold yourself have someone there to say ya or nay to the routine operation of the panel and see how well you do.

I just did the Pump 101 simulator and have already got my money's worth for my FE subscription! As a "frigging probie" this type of training is invaluable. I work in the midwest and we can't just go out and play with the pump in 15 degree weather. I'm looking forward to more sims like that!
