that way every team gets a bit
What I find interesting is the level of commitment of the trainees too. The MRT that covers the area I live in (not the closest HQ though) has a training period of IIRC 12 or 18 months. During that time you are expected to go to all but one of their training nights and there is a whole list of other must do's too. All that before they can go on the full call out list. They can help on call outs before the full qualified status but there are limitations. Then once fully qualified they don't have quite as strict requirements on them.
Anyway, I think all full team members and trainees have a high degree of commitment as do their employers. I have been interested in MRT and even looked into it but in my case the support is not there from my employers. Without employer support MRT would not have as many team members.That will have a cost too.
