A Job System that includes 36 classes is used in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Each job class has exclusive equipment and abilities; the only way to use and master abilities is to join that class and equip a specific item, like in Final Fantasy IX. Most items that can be equipped have various job-specific abilities assigned them. These abilities are available for use only while that item is equipped; however, abilities can be mastered by fighting in battles. When a battle is completed, characters will receive Ability Points (AP) distributed over their currently equipped abilities. Once enough AP is received for a given ability, the character will master that ability. The character retains it for use at any time, regardless of the items equipped and job chosen.
The ability sub-menu: Units have a primary job which determines the stat boosts they receive when they level up and the attributes associated with that class. A unit may also have a secondary job, where they can use any abilities of the selected job, but with the stat profile of the primary job. e.g. an Assassin with a Sniper secondary job could use abilities from both jobs, but has the stat profile of her primary job.

 Nu Mou
 Specialist Jobs
After completing their respective missions, some unique characters may offer to join your clan. These Characters come with Specialist Jobs and Abilitys.
These Special Job Characters can equip a range of weapons and armour, but cannot change Jobs or learn new Abilities.
