Fault finding is like validating/moderating or testing different training materials or any other resource (a technical story versus a set of diagnostic heuristics). During the training session, fault-finding is to be applied and measured before and after the delivery of the training material. The latter test involved ‘old’ faults and ‘new’ faults from the same and different categories to those encountered during training.
