We, and the STC in particular, seem to make an effort to get people to
become TC's, but outside of the local chapter job bank we don't do enough
to help. And, beyond entry levels, many senior TC's don't have experience
in the newest tools. It seems to me that we could set up incubators like
the SBA does for small business. We could set up a small classroom with
networked PCs and the latest tools. That would help everyone keep up on the
tool end.
