Six minus means 6 hours or fewer on duty. 6+ means more than six hours. Part time soldiers are paid not by the hour but rather a period of less than six hours or a period of more than six hours. 6-, 6+ So if you go into the armoury for one evening of training that is a 6-. If you go in all day Saturday that is 6+. If you go in Friday night and stay until Sunday evening, that is one 6- and two 6+. It would not be the civilian equivalent of about 48 hours times some hourly rate. Exactly what the training budget, current rates of pay (and allowances) or time table at any unit is, requires you go in and ask them. The 12RBC will be glad to see you and will answer all your questions. Cheers.
