A lot of experience was necessary to mold either a competent signalman or a quartermaster. "A little bit of training" might gain an entry position but it definitely would not enable one to perform at the required level. Many smaller ships and submarines combined their signal-quartermaster functions so that each could do the others job, but not the big ships.
