Let’s use infantry as an example. Who is going to be the most effective as an infantryman? Someone who spends all day every day kicking down doors. Most infantrymen could probably learn how to do everything an MP does, but then they might only get 4 days/week of infantry stuff because they need to be practicing driving police cars on the fifth day. Then, if they also need to learn to be a combat engineer, they’re only doing infantry stuff 3 days/week, because they’re driving police cars one day and playing with demo another day. But what if they happen to see an unoccupied tank when they’re out on a mission? Well, they should probably spend another day/week training as tank crews. Pretty soon, you have someone who can do a bunch of things *okay*, but none of them *well*.

And then there’s the cost of having them all learn the material. CCT training is 2 years long, while infantry training is 13 weeks (including basic). You just octupled the time an infantryman spends in AIT, for the off-chance that it’ll be up to them alone to call an air strike.
