    Academy Failures - Listen Up!

    I am going to interject my opinion on this matter about the grading at the academy. As stinger did say that someone did lose .44 points for sitting to close to the R side and that someone was this guy. See image below; So for everyone that says it is all in the SOP's and LOA's etc. I would...

    I am also a enroute washout (.31%) however i have all my notes and information from my personal folder that can give some insight on if anyone has any questions. (I also got .44% taking off for sitting to close to the Rside, which is always a fun error. Thanks perry ann)

    ZDC November 2011 Selectees

    Get used to it if your headed to ZDC, cross training of the new sectors should be complete by now however there is still a backlog of people to get trained. People who were in my class started on the floor D-side a couple months ago. (OKC date was Nov'11)

    Enroute washouts / psych outs

    No I did fail for something stupid, sitting to close to the R-side was a 2pts deuction so (2x.22=.44 (total points) being that I failed .31, I did indeed fail for sitting to close.

    Enroute washouts / psych outs

    I cannot stress enough that the grading system in OKC is very flawed and which evaluator you get may affect your overall score at the academy. Point in case failing for sitting to close to the R-Side and being told no points were taken off by the grader, supervisor and teachers. Receiving your...

    Enroute washouts / psych outs

    Re: Enroute washouts / psych outs. The academy is failing to produce the results the centers want this is evident in a memo that was circulated in late 2011 & early 2012 by ATM's. Subsequently, the academy added 6 more people to the new course and became more stringent on grading students thus...

    Enroute Radar Bible

    I disagree very much in the structure of your statement. I agree that you cannot memorize problems due to the fact they all run differently based on the person. However the academy is set up so that you run the problems and do memorize and see the same thing over. The trick is in the PV that...
