Can a POI waive those requirements? Surely there are limits on what a POI can approve/waive.
I don't know what the internal policy limits are for the POI's discretion on OPSPECs...at some point presumably he has to ask Washington. Maybe there is precedent for this somewhere else?

Are they actually giving PC's, or just sim training? There's generally a lower bar for trainers vs. checkers.
