We will discuss the training and on-boarding initiatives currently adopted by a range of High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments. On-boarding refers to the process by which new members of a collaboration gain the knowledge and skills needed to become effective members. Fast and efficient on-boarding is increasingly important for HEP experiments as physics analyses and, as a consequence, the related software becomes ever more complex with growing datasets. The HEP Software Foundation (HSF) held a meeting series in Summer 2022 where 6 LHC and non-LHC experiments showcased their initiatives. Here we summarise and analyse these initiatives and attempt to determine a set of best practices for current and future experiments.
