“15 minutes to learn the Acu-Rite Solutions DRO”

“It gives the student right in their face what’s happening as they move the dial, and once they get that you no longer see them watching the dials. You see them just watching their screens. It takes students about 15 minutes to learn the Acu-Rite Solutions DRO.”
