We are presently training Consultants on how to use the consultant planner. 
Have been hearing a lot about Consultants who are lacking training. 
This planner allows you to cut your research time in 1/2 and conduct the one on one, spirit led, heartfelt family history experience for not only your patron but yourself the way that the First Presidency has asked. 
The link to the actual pdf will be on this site and once you have that, you can click on the links which will take you directly to videos to watch when you are at home and forget the steps.

Then, ask them who they will share this with!
