You will find no person more in agreement that we cannot train 100% of

"Most people" do not.  Not even close to most people and very nearly
never any people consistently, since the ability of humans to perform
real-time and nuanced monitoring reliably like this, reliably and over
time, borders on no ability at all.

Feel free to provide documentation to the contrary.

The issue isn't whether people generally understand the general issue.
It's whether they can develop very specific understandings and apply
them in real time, to useful effect over extended time.

Trying to "measure" the result of training is usually futile, because
correctly posing the questions, and getting useful answers is equally
complicated and fraught with definitional/terminology problems. 

Right.  That should alert us all to the challenges of the training itself.
