Train Them Yourself
This is a trade off. You save more money, but you lose time yourself. If you are always busy then having to keep training others like newcomers can get old fast. Also, you will only be able to impart a certain amount of knowledge. You can do your best, and see if it is enough. Sure, you can spend an hour telling them, but do you have the extra time after to consistently coach them through mistakes and other issues and questions they may have. Not likely. Although if you train more than one up in one sitting you could be saving time in the long run.

This is great, but you need to make sure the individual is the type who would benefit from this kind of learning or it will be money wasted.
