View Full Version : recurrent training out of order?

02-22-2010, 03:01 PM
Hey y'all,

Hoping someone might have some insight on an issue or have some recommendations on how to address a questionable issue. I have training assigned for the end of March (my 4th or 5th choice period) and have found someone junior with a training period that fell into one of my first three choices. Is that possible? Thanks for any insight...

Until recently, I had NEVER received any of my recurrent training choices! In fact, I actually stopped bidding for recurrent training (assuming I wouldn't get any of those choices anyway). Once when I called the futures scheduler about a different subject, she asked why I hadn't bid for recurrent training. I told her I never get any of my choices so what's the point? She didn't seem amused :eek:

checked the training list for the month of March and he doesn't even show due for training??? Then I checked Feb as well, thinking he might be a "grace period month" guy and might have priority... he doesn't show up there either... I'm confused!!

E mail and ask him. I know I wouldn't care.

Thanks guys for the info... I think I found the answer... silly me... I didn't look at the other training cycle for the dates/sim times... he is due for the other cycle and obviously bids for those dates apart from us. Thanks again... safe flyin'
