So instead of taking experienced controllers they are sending all the off the street academy grads…. Cool I guess congrats to the people that got picked for the last NCEPT. You’ll be the only one getting picked up.

Yeah it’s unfortunate, that is my end game facility I want to be at too. Just seems really shitty to only take 8 CPCs. From the random posts I’ve seen there are easily 20 grads already going there since the NCEPT panel, and this next class 6 are picking ZJX. Cool cool

Yeah ZJX is my end game facility as well. Been trying to get there for years now. With that many grads going they won’t be able to pick up anyone on the August NCEPT.

Would have literally given my left but to have ZJX on my list a couple years back. And now literally anyone who wants to go there can. What a complete joke.
Something changed only recently too, I was in the last class to eval and on placement day they came out and said change of plans anyone who wants ZJX can go. We always assumed that anyone who wanted it could request it and get it but they said before our class there were two ZJX spots on the list and that was it, they wouldn’t take a request.

This sounds about right based on what I saw on ksn. They picked up 10 AG's since the last ncept panel and have 2 more slots on the list graduating this week and will probably be on a few more AG lists going forward but that's about it. Probably going to slow to a trickle now. As of the latest priority list, they still needed 14 bodies to get to the national average but they moved down to the high teens in priority instead of being like number 2. The staffing issues have been resolved! Thank you to all who applied and expressed interest but it's no longer necessary.

All part of The Great Reset. You will own nothing and be happy!

They specifically made sure the numbers for ZJX were raised before the NCEPT panel (they knew the dire need for bodies there) so they could pick up CPCs on that round. I think their numbers were upped by 35ish. So they select 8 people, then tell the other 20+ transfer requests tough luck basically, and fill the rest with academy.

Nothing against AGs, but it doesn’t instill much confidence to the ones not selected on NCEPT, then watching 25 AGs go instead. Even during a “staffing crisis” some people can’t move lol
