Trainee - Anyone with less than 6months experience
Spot on Trowelfodder and Troll.

Anyone appointed as a 'trainee' (and therefore on a lower salary) should be given a clearly defined agenda for trqaining, not just thrust out into the field and told to learn on the job so that after a few months they can be made up to the next level.

I'm not asure that I have any real opinion on whether or not a pipeline is a suitable place to train - I have always regarded pipelines as being like any other sort of development site, which come in a diverse range of shapes and sizes and which require bespoke solutions for mitigation. I have never really had much time for individuals or companies that advertise themselves as 'pipeline specialists' although I note that in at least one recent advert the company is asking for applicants with previous pipline experience.

In terms of training, if the spread contains decent sites and features that require excavation than a trainee could be used and would certainly learn from those around them. However, as Mr Hosty has pointed out, machine-watching is not the place for a trainee on a pipeline or any other type of project.
