Is it possible to hold CTO/radar ratings from two different facilities at the same time? I’m exiting the military soon and want to transfer to the reserves. My commander said he will approve me to complete my reserve time at my current facility. I will likely be taking a job at different facility nearby.
Curious if the FAA and DoD have any restrictions on this.

its absolutely possible, we had reserve controllers in our RAPCON and they worked at the neighboring TRACON and one at the Center. And later on we had a reserve controller keep up with her proficiency after she moved to Arizona.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know of any pubs/ directives address this topic specifically. Reason is, I was told from a CIV at my current facility that the quals from my previous facility would be void once I qualified somewhere else. Makes sense since you wouldn’t be maintaining currency at the previous facility, but in my case I would. Just looking for something I can reference if it comes up. Also, does this mean both facility’s quals would be on my 7220 credentialing card at the same time?

Idk of any pub that would say something like that. From my old facility it was up to the Chief Controller and he just worked with the reservists on when they can come in.

The controller that moved to AZ opted to come in on the last 2 days of a month and the first 2 days of the next month. So they had 4 days in a row to knock out their pro-time for 2 months then fly back to AZ. For example: Dec 30-Jan 2nd then they won’t hve to come back until Feb 28-Mar 2nd.

I wasn’t in the reserves, but I did PCS from one base to another and the new base ordered a NEW credential card for me. I’d assume you’d just have 2 separate cards as well.
