This unofficial training can be especially useful for Ratlings before their drill, but in no way should make them feel pressured to complete their drill before they're ready.  As always, this training is 100% optional and voluntary. This training is not required in order to rat or dispatch. Please see Training SOP for a detailed explanation and lists of possible training scenarios.

While we have a lot of information written down and watching rescues in #fuelrats provides valuable knowledge, nothing beats hands on experience.  This experience can be gained on live rescues, or in a controlled environment where situations can range from standard rescues to any situation that we can think of.  This hands-on experience is useful for Ratlings and experienced Rats alike.  

A number of rats have volunteered to help provide training from basic rat/dispatch skills to more advanced skills like TFPs.  If you see any of the Rats named below in chat, and are interested in the training feel free to reach out to them for some organized practice.   

The training should be focused on teaching just like formal drills.  Extreme role-playing or "noobishness" shouldn't be a part of the training for any new recruits.

Feel free to experiment with new or different procedures, try out new ships or any scenarios that you want.

Just like a drill, #drillrats or #drillrats2 etc. can be used.  There is no need for an overseer to be involved with training.

Anyone interested in volunteering to offer training, contact Anja324.
