Please note: Training timelines refer to the period when trainees are taking (usually weekly) classes in addition to regular shifts. For some sections, trainees are often voted in as members shortly after this period has concluded. For sections that provide direct medical services, however, trainees must demonstrate proficiency in relevant skills while on shift before getting voted in. Thus, for these sections, vote-ins happen on average 1 year after training begins. Aside from Shift requirements, section each have their own requirecements for meetings and off-shift tasks. Please refer to each section's application for more details
