That's true. Maybe just colour them differently until their probation/new mod period is up? Maybe simply give them one forum to be in charge of, then up it after that period is done if they prove to be a good mod. It could simply be a private thing that occurs too. The training itself once the job is obtained does need to occur though, I've seen too many mods do their job badly to want to let that continue to go unchecked.
This would all be a ton easier if we had a coadmin. I can't fully flesh out an idea for this without knowing someone will be on to keep an eye on a possible new group.
