MrKoronas, Eckie, Pronixx and I have been discussing about what we could comunicate during the training session. So far we have come up with this program.
If I put it up here, that's because I would advise you to go over it, as almost all the topics are quickly explained. This way, if you missed a training session, you can still look at this and gather some information.
The "General awareness" and "Planetside reflexes" chapters are especially made for less experienced players, or just players that didn't bother looking more in depth into the game. By reading these chapters, you could get an information you didn't already know, wich would improve your survivability and overall effectiveness.
So here it is :
1) In-game voice
a) Correct voice settings
i) Esc -> SETTINGS -> AUDIO & VOICE -> "Master Receive Volume" to 70, "Transmit volume" to 50, "Ducking" to 50
ii) Ducking settings (reduces sounds when someone is talking, In game, Not TS) -> "Ducking" to 50
b) Hotkeys set-up to mute TS when talking ingame (talk to Kyle)
a) Squad name and number
i) Alpha One or A1 in squad or platoon chat

a) Switching out squad leader
i) Sometimes, squad leaders are asked to redeploy first to a base in order to put a beacon; Don’t redeploy on that base if you’re not a squad leader, wait for the beacons to be up.
ii) Request new squad lead, “Who can place beacon”
iii) Setting up the “Squad Promote request” hotkey, Initially not assigned to anything

i) Be in a spot where the enemy comes from as few places as possible
e) How to recognise a safespot, how to recognise a potential danger
i) If you see a dead body on the ground, just think that he died of something. So be careful if you approach the body (especially for medics).
f) Keeping doors clear during Point holds
i) More guns on the door because nobody blocking it means that the enemies die quicker
