37 days, as in 37 full days or 37 half days ? Would you think that an transition to one weekend each month would be a better value that 4 class A nights ? Given the amount of training you get for the same “price” I mean.
That's 37 mandays, as in full days. This has to cover everything from AAG/DAG nights, range exercises, FTX events, training nights, Mandatory Online Courses, Admin/CQ stuff, Remembrance Day, Bde Concentrations etc etc. Sometimes you can scrape up additional mandays for courses.
I've been around the block with every conceivable type of training schedule over the years and have found that the one weekend per month, one night per week, is definitely the most effective.
Things change so fast that if you don't see the troops at least once per week, you quickly fall behind in being able to prepare for the latest 'fast ball'.
You also tend to lose people with 'real jobs' and families etc as their weekends are really important.
