I know that's a terrible and vague heading.

We currently have one available slot for laser induction bookings, and it's two weeks away. It may be worth finding out who is able and willing to give these inductions, and get them to commit, if possible, to a certain time each week - even if it's only a couple of hours, and even if we only have one block per week, it would be very useful to be able to say to people, 'Laser inductions take place on x'.

When we had regular Thursday morning inductions, they were bringing in reasonably good money, all of which has been lost. I do understand that it's difficult to ask so much of people, but I don't think it hurts to ask, so long as everyone knows they are more than welcome to say no.

Is there a written induction procedure covering everything that needs to be conveyed?

Can I suggest than an expert inductor creates an induction document because then people like me who could probably induct but aren’t sure they are clear on what they need to cover could think about committing some time?

I can't commit to regular times however I may be able to commit some time in advance.

  • how do I get on the list of "accredited inductors" ?

  • how to I make organisers aware that I can provide induction for slots on certain times/dates, say a week in advance?

I'm more than happy to help people out with the laser, have been doing so for the past two weeks anyway. Whether I'm ready enough to induct people is up to one of you. Willing to take on more and more responsibilities, so let me know when I'm needed.

Did anyone who offered assistance with this ever let us know about availability?

@johnmckerrell is there a way we can open up the laser induction calendar so that anyone can add their own timeslots to it? At the moment, the only slot available is a 10am Saturday morning one, and they're not every week. If we could make this easier for people to help with, we can allow more options for people who want to be inducted.

This is a far more important issue than I think most people realise - when we used to have a regular Thursday morning induction slot, we were regularly bringing in upwards of £100 a month from inductions, and this has dwindled away to basically nothing (bar the odd couple here and there) since Patrick left. If we were able to get back to a position where we can say with certainty that there are slots available regularly, then it could go some way to boosting the coffers.

I've contacted five people who are currently either involved with, or have expressed an interest in, delivering inductions. The aim is to have a much more regular schedule of paid induction slots available.

Since we now have two regular slots, and a group that is happy to step in if none of those are suitable and work something out, I'm closing this issue.
