If you go out on mil leave for OVER a year prior to completing initial qual consolidation and plan on returning to the same equipment, what sort of requal can you expect?

4 day or full course?

Checked with APA mil affairs rep and he was unsure.

From the Military Affairs Return from Military Leave Checklist...

ďIf you have been out for more than one year, but less than two years and are returning to the same equipment, training will last approximately a week.Ē

Saw that, but it doesnít address the consolidation issue. My understanding is AQP requires completion of consolidation otherwise the initial training is invalid.

I'm in the same boat as you except I was only out for 6 months. I'm only getting an R9.

This may require a call to Sue Kalosa. I'm interested to know the answer before my R9 late next week.

If you don't consolidate don't you get a GS day 1:1 with a GS instructor and one sim session with a SimP? After that you go to a regular R9 and get all your required R9 training dates reset.

That was the protocol years ago.

When I missed consolidation (due to mil), that training layout is what they did for me. Slice, what I don't know if that is FAA driven, or AQP driven.

Just looked at my TMS. It looks like Iím getting 1 day of academics followed by an R9. So 4 days total.

So no additional sim prior to the R9? Had you consolidated? If yes maybe that's the difference? No consolidation = extra sim, consolidated = no sim?

No extra sim. I have not consolidated.

Iím not sure if thatís correct or not though and not really sure who to ask. Awaiting the OPs response.

I just got a voicemail from SK. She said I would get ď10 total daysĒ of training. Iím not entirely sure what that will consist of.

I called training directly and they're saying that, for my situation, the 4 days is correct. It's essentially an R9 with an extra day of academics/IPT. She referred to it as a Requal Consolidation and that it has the same footprint as a Requal Short course.

How long did take for them to get you a training date?

I emailed SK on 29 Jun with my availability date of 16 Jul. On the 12th I was given a 27 Jul class date.
