In the last few years, I have worked at an ASA national tournament and attended an ASA national umpire school.

In both cases, we were asked to use or shown things mechanically different from what we have been taught at the local level. I put a lot of stock in our local area training, due to the fact that we have access to one of the premier FP softball umpires and trainers in the country.

It gets frustrating to work week after week on the things you are taught locally, then attend a national level event and be shown something radically different. I just try to grin and bear it!
It's what you learn after you think you know it all that's important!
