If you are going through that number of trainees and your success rate is only 40% then I seriously wonder how good your training is. You are investing 3 months of effort and then throwing 60% of it away. Perhaps it is better to look at your methods and trainers than just saying "Bye, Bye"

Hi All,

        We probably train 3-4 juniors per year. Our success rate is under 40%.

The problem is the mindset. Our basic rule is before you do anything you must know "How am I going to return to where I started if something goes wrong?"
