Training and use of airborne weather radar

I remember reading an article in Aviation International News about a study made by one of the weather radar manufacturers into the training given to airline pilots in the use of airborne weather radar.
The study basically concluded that the training given was very poor ,and most pilots had a very poor understanding of how to use their weather radars effectively or that the returns on the display could mean different things if the gain was moved out of calibrated setting.
What training in your radar have you received and what settings do you use and does anybody have a link to the original study?
