M.H.I. recruit training is an intensive four month program. The training is similar to many armed forces recruit training but everything is monster hunting related. The classroom sessions range from company history, first aid and weapon familiarity to how to kill undead, general bestiary and vampire weaknesses. There is a structured physical aspect to the program with cross-country runs, fitness classes, weight lifting and obstacle courses and of course training with weapons and small unit tactics.
