There is a considerable difference between C/Sing for internes and new auditors and C/Sing for veterans.
This shows up mainly in C/Sing prepared lists.
For an interne or new auditor or one who is not very experienced or expert, the rule is that a C/S gives as little thinking to do as possible in the session.
It is enough for such an auditor to do the actions. It is too much to also ask him to use judgment or work something out while auditing.
A veteran on the other hand knows the tools so well that he can also figure out what to do.
C/S for non-veteran:
1. Assess GF Method 5 and return to C/S.
C/S for a veteran:
1. Assess GF Method 5 and Handle.
It is quite a trick to assess a whole list, then take the biggest reads and handle. It is quite beyond an auditor who is still worrying about his TRs or how you run a meter.
In an effort to speed up lines or escape work, a C/S can err badly in this. It becomes mysterious why Word Clearing Correction List ceases to work, why F/Ns are few at the Examiner.
Giving an inexperienced auditor the responsibility for assessing a list and also handling it is in fact asking him to audit and to a faint degree C/S in the chair. It is quite beyond a green auditor.
Given that he knows his Tech, most of a C/S’s troubles come from
(a) Asking green auditors to follow C/Ses for which they have not studied the HCO Bs or on which they have not been crammed,
(b) C/Sing for green auditors to decide something in session or combine actions such as assessing and handling without a new C/S in between,
(c) Not sending the auditor (green or veteran) to Cramming for every goof,
(d) Having no Cramming.
It takes a while to make an auditor.
The C/S is responsible for all actions in the session. He has only himself to blame if he is asking someone to C/S for him in the chair.
It is easier to plan out and write up the needed GF actions (or any other list) from the Method 5 reads than it is to correct a messed-up handling. It does not save any time at all but more than likely makes new problems for the C/S.
It is very easy to have even a green auditor assess some prepared list. One can even now say, “Take the list just assessed and do 2WC on each item I have marked. Carry each E/S to an F/N before leaving it.” The C/S simply puts a dash ahead of each item that read in the assessment.
The C/S can also number the items in different order than the list (because of better programming or bigger reads) and have each one handled to F/N.
An L3B can be ordered “Method 5” and then the C/S can get it back and precisely order what’s to be done with its reads. And in what sequence.
This is true of any prepared list.
The only small hitch is that a C/S has to be there and available so as not to stall the session. Even so, in the long run it is faster because less mistakes are made. Assess — send to C/S — handle. Instead of “Assess and Handle”.
This even applies to a C/S 53 or C/S 54 or White Form or GF 40X. Any prepared list.
Perhaps this will greatly improve your F/N VGI ratio.
