Finding a good trainer like that really is a blessing! And I say that as someone with a training certificate (I don't actually do it, though, I just took the course to fulfill credits). Sounds like Steve got lucky in quite a few ways :)
Both Steve and Bucky hit the jackpot with this assignment... Thank god for Natasha and her meddling insight ;) It's funny that you mention the training bit - for a while after I first finished undergrad I really considered going Bucky's route and getting a training certificate to make some money before going for a DPT, but life ended up taking me in a different direction. At any rate, thanks so much for reading and commenting, I'm glad that you enjoyed the fic!
