TSEW waiver

Messages

My facility said I will be getting a waiver for TSEW because I have up/down experience. No extra OJT hours or sim time will be given if I sign this waiver. I heard it’s a great class to learn how to work busy finals, but there’s a huge backlog for the academy so I could be potentially waiting for a year or longer for a class.

Any input on whether TSEW is worth skipping is appreciated.

Skip it no OKC class no matter how good is worth waiting on a backlog for.

what does “no extra sim time” mean? I’d make sure it’s completely explicit as in “no time in substitution for tsew” and keep copies.

TSEW was solid for no radar experience, but I got not much more from it than I did RTF and if I had radar exp i'd definitely sign that waiver and move on.

As mentioned above, I would get everything in writing 100% And I wouldn‘t sign anything that says “I am requesting to not go to this course”. Bottom line is, if you flub your sim eval you’ll want something to be able to use to grieve the training not done in a fair and equitable manner.

We’ve had issues with people not passing the sim at my facility, and through the years it’s gotten to the point where even if you’re struggling, you’re not allowed to work extra problems or anything like that, due to past grievances getting a second shot because “the sim partner stayed past our shove and did extra problems on a couple of days“

Also, be clear and ask the training manager or support manager what exactly happens if you don’t go to OKC for this class that everyone else gets, and then you don’t pass the sim. Do you get a second shot on a backup eval?
