Had to do it! If you have a PTOL or TOL stating your projected school date is Apr-June post away!

So, just some info incase people wondered. Once you reach your facility, you'll start working toward D1 certification. Basically training through the FAA is based on scales... D1, D2, D3 and CPC. You recieve a pay raise for each as you move along in your training. So for enroute, you will be assigned a speciality. A specialist is a way of dividing the work load throughout the center. In your speciality, you may have up to 6-9 sectors. D1 entails learning your first two D-sides or radar associate. Next is D2 which requires you to learn all the D-sides. D3 is two R-sides and CPC is all of your R-sides.

I'm hoping I can get Approach, it's honestly the most fun. I am also "projected" going in Apr.. Hopefully it's sooner though because 9 months is a long way away heh.

I received my PTOL stating that I was picked for en route for April-June as well. I feel like I've been seeing a lot of people with the same thing. Weird.

3 or 5 years,.. not a big deal. Look at the potential for your salary within those few years and I think that it is all worth it. 6 years military here with only Terminal experience.
