I saw a lawncare training video at Walmart that was in Spanish.

I found a lawncare training video:

A little pricey, though. If anyone uses this, I'd be interested to know what you think of it.

I was talking to my agent today and he said that if we were ever prosecuted, a training video or some sort of physical training material would stand up in court. Well for me anyway (my workers are all signed as independent contractors so they provide their own social security and insurance)
So I think some training material would definitely be of some benefit!

you can get the exmark one for free from their website "the safety zone" or something like that, i don't remember. Teaches about safety, not really operation of the machine. But, for someone new to using a ZTR, it may provide something to start with.

just listened to some of the videos on this website.

http://www.opei.org/library/avroom.asp

I did buy spanish & english version of "trainwithvideos" They are available though one of the green associations. Not Planet but another one. It was good and gave a real good overview and seemed professional to me. If I find it I will post it.
