Well, we have new students train alone with a senior student for a few classes before they're introduced into the general practice. Basic tenkan, ukemi, ikkyo, etc. However, they do line up like everyone else, and after class, everyone thanks the instructor, and then we finish by thanking every other person who trained by bowing and saying "thank you, First Name". If you don't know their name, you ask and then maybe shake their hand.
