When dealing with comics and valuable collectibles the training will take longer.

CBCS will not turn a employee loose until they are ready. And in truth you really wouldn’t want us to.

I know it is frustratingly, but we are working hard to get this on track.

Okay I call BULLSHIT on this. I work in healthcare, when new staff are onboarding it takes 4 months or less to let them be released completely on their own. We deal with life or death matters, with less training then it takes to train someone to grade a comic book?

What life and death matters are you teaching people to handle in less than a semester of college?

CPR is taught in a 4 hour class. ACLS is taught over two days. Both of these classes are literally lifesaving classes.

HR below 40 call the doctor above 150 and laying in bed call the doctor.

BP systolic over 200 call the doctor BP below 90 and sympotmatic call the doctor

RR over 30 call the doctor below 10 call the doctor

I just taught you 6 critical things in 10 minutes LOL. These people did go to school for X amount of time not sure if there’s a school for grading though

Y'know - Bloodlikefire has a valid point that shouldn't be ignored as just more ranting.
I, too, am in Healthcare and 3 months maximum training before I'm ready to keep or let the person go. That's in Healthcare.

I look closely at words and no timeframe was given; instead phrases like "... training will take longer" and "... will not turn an employee loose" are void of any specific timeframe.

That said, those phrases appear to imply "a bunch more time needed". At least that's my perception. If so, that seems like the state of the business is still not in a good place

I'm an accountant...so I look at things though lists and check boxes.
Other than judgment calls on severity of edge dents or colour bereak etc. couldn't you put large amounts of comic grading into some sort of checklist/calculator?

i.e. spine stress Y/N - if Y then # of spine ticks, severity of colour break etc. Pages - enter OWL level etc. etc. and just spit out a grade??
