Online Timing Education

Thank you to Dave Iverson for this learning oportunity

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mV5R9hnlpX78YxTQUwhlI7wqG8ZJUt5-ZW7xMjh7D3Y/edit?usp=sharing

1)  Practice calculating hand times (time-of-day subtraction)
2)  Practice doing an Equivalent Electric Time (EET)
3)  Practice filling out a TDTR
4)  Practice calculating a FIS Penalty

The focus is on real data.  Participants will be using scans of real parent-volunteer-generated hand-timing sheets and associated timing tapes.
Each task has a “quiz” full of questions.  When all the answers are filled in, the participant can see what they got right and where they made mistakes.
Everything is self-paced.  You can do it whenever you want, and take as long as you want.  I estimate the whole thing should take 4-8 hours.

This is aimed at lots of people.  The two most important groups are:
•New Timing and Calculations hires/volunteers that want to go through this before their first real race.
•TD’s who know they should be stronger at Timing and Calculations, but haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and really work through it.
