ARTI Team Member Requirements

Operational Team Member Skills

But don't let this list scare you just because you don't have all of the required `formal' training skills. Training is important, however, we feel the ability to "learn on-the-fly"; to "be able to adapt to any situation" and the guts to tackle the tasks at hand, whatever they may be, carries a lot of weight as well.

As well as having the skills, applicants for Operational Membership must have read the on-line information before completing and forwarding their resume. All applicants resumes, that pass the initial screening, will be placed before an international Adjudication Group for evaluation. Adjudication and personal investigation can take from three to six months or more. Probational acceptance as an Operational Member requires the positive vote of two thirds of the Adjudicators. Final acceptance requires a 1 00 percent vote and will be only granted after completion of and debriefing from your first mission.
