It was fixed in 6 days. So as far as the group that was corrected retroactively they just found out a week later. If it wasn’t for NATCA they would’ve been skipped forever. Along with the other 140 in the panel that would have not been allowed to move. There’s still some people out there working on this shit.
My problem with the whole thing is now there are facilities releasing below numbers. For years people were in eligible to even get ranked due to numbers, then when the FAA fucks up, meh we don't care about numbers. And on top of that, the releasing facilities are even shorter staffed. Glad NATCA got it fixed, but damn if there weren't maybe a smoother way to do it. I'm fucking tired of training idiots.

They didn't release below numbers though. The AOB and projected were still good for those facilities at the time secletions should've been made. The agency just decided not to do it because there weren't enough trainees to backfill those places releasing a bunch all at once (at least that's kinda my understanding of what happened.)

Yes we did. They completely ignored the 3 people committed out. 1 of which already signed the supe FOL.
How many trainees you have and projected to certified? They count those numbers too…my facility have 3 cpcs leaving between September and Oct, and now me and this other leaving next year May and Aug…is a darn numbers game no one will ever understand…my facility currently have 6 in training and 4 projected to certify by the end of the year or early 2023, 🤷‍♂️ what do I know 🤣

3 committed out is not ignored, it’s reflected in your projected staffing. If your projected staffing is above 85 and your actual staffing is above 85 then you’re eligible to release.
Also this website is not the place to argue that it needs to be harder to be green. They don’ take that kind ‘round herr.

It's ridiculous, frankly. Most are better off getting a bachelor's degree online and pursuing a career change. I know others at my facility who are about to bail for the airlines because getting all your ratings and building hours has become a more timely way of getting unstuck than NCEPT. We should start a thread to help people exploring other options.
Just got my passport to apply to Middle East dod jobs with a friend I’m so tired of being stuck on the opposite side of the country from my family for beans. If I’m not gonna get to see them might as well make better money doing it.

Does staffing factor in for the bids on USAJobs? Put in a bunch because fuck NCEPT but we're just barely understaffed.

For 2152 jobs, definitely. If you’re understaffed, they’re not gonna let you leave on some supe bid as easily. It’ll require a deviation, which can be a shot in the dark.
