Something that may be holding someone back from lighting up the source of their training is the risk that the trainer gets nuked by the state, and now your permit is invalidated. Not sure if that's a thing, but when I saw the UTMs for the live-fire part at WaS I was thinking, "ohhhh boy, I hope I'm not going to lose my permit down the road and be out $350 if they get their certs yanked". It feels like you're acting against your own self-interest to speak up about problems you see in the mandatory training.
I've wondered if this would happen. I've had people tell me things like "this person I know is taking a class and they said they can do it in 8 hours". To which I told them to be careful with that, because I'd imagine if the instructor gets caught all their students might be jammed up and loose their permit. Then you'll need to spend the money all over again.
I wouldn't put anything past government.
