At least two Air Traffic Basics classes for FY09 have been released to the FAA website.

First one begins 10/21 and ends 11/25.
Second begins 11/07 and ends 12/15.

NOTE: These are both for tower option only. No updates to Enroute or TRACON schedules as of right now. Also, the tower cab classes that these two basics classes would segue into have also not been loaded yet.

This is great news, I have a feeling the Dec9 and Dec15 might have some of our (Pub2)names on it... down there just in time for the holidays. I certainly wouldn't mind.

And there are a LOT of classes in September... everyone waiting for a FOL might find themselves in one of those classes.. it looks like double classes since the class ## is different.. interesting..

I haven't really been following along with the FEBOTS as much lately. So I ask, do you all know when your tentative class dates are? Are they on this list?
If we can find out which dates have been given out and which ones haven't, then we may be able to figure out what dates have been made specifically for the Pub2 announcement.

When I was at the NYC PEPC (exactly 4 weeks and 1 day ago), at the very end when HR asked me my tentative dates preferences, I said I would be interested in October and she said that she was only taking dates through September and would hold off on putting my date down, but things may have changed since people from that PEPC are being assigned October dates

When you had your PEPC those dates were not on there. They just posted them yesterday or today, hopefully that means the FAA got some type of interim funding for FY09 but it looks like there shouldn't be a holdup on class dates anymore. :)

Well I'm not a FEBOTS I am an 07 applicant who went to the LA PEPC and it has been 7 weeks and 2 days here....I have noticed that a lot of the folks starting this month are from the 1st Chicago PEPC that I believe happened in April (not positive on that) and I would like to see the 07 applicants get into Aug or Sept before the FEBOTS. No offence guys but I don't believe there are that many of us left and I have been seeing NY PEPC people getting dates and there are still LA PEPC people waiting. Ugh! what a frustrating thing this waiting can be sometimes. I was told in writing that I should have a date by the end of the week and today...in writting..."I have not heard anything yet"...this sucks!!! Okay, I am done venting...best of luck to us all in starting out soon.

You can only get it back once you have truely given it up.

Totally true, you deserve to hear back by now. There are Ny PEPCers somehow making it in classes but they still got you hanging... (is our HR rep slacking? I still haven't heard anything)

I'd guess you guys would be later than Decemeber. These classes fill fast, so by the time they get to you, it could be January or later.

I'm fine either way, I forgot there were people still waiting to go PEPC from Pub1 (seems like its taking a long time for everyone to right? lol)

Interesting I was at the July 7th PEPC for enroute in NY and they didn't ask me anything about preferences for OKC. I actually spoke to my HR rep yesterday (Elaine Mccollum) and she said they don't have dates for enroute people yet and it would still be a week or two before us enroute guys will be receiving our FOL. She did say everything they had on me has gone through and been approved, security and all clearances just waiting on class date.

Hmm, someone else posted this on another thread

http://www.academy.faa.gov/class/searchClass.asp?CID=50146

but it shows en-route basics on 10/20 and 11/18.
The description is slightly different, but if you read it, the class is still an en-route basic with additional training in URET (whatever that is).

"This 64-day course is designed for developmental En Route Air Traffic Control Specialists. It differs from Course 50145, Initial En Route Training, in that it contains training on the User Request Evaluation Tool (URET). This course consists of lecture, computer-based instruction, medium fidelity skill practice, and high fidelity lab scenarios. Instruction will enable the developmental to progress into field-delivered stages of air traffic controller training."

This is what she told me,

I currently have all your clearances approved, i am waiting for the new
year facility assignments so i can begin to fill class slots. I will be in
contact as soon as i receive that and have a class date to offer you, I
cannot send the firm offer until such time that i am able to offer a class
date. We hope to have that information in the next few weeks. We
appreciate your interest and will be in contact just as soon as possible.

So I misunderstood I guess she is saying that they dont have the FY09 facility assignments for enroute.

Just got the same thing. We're all just waiting for the class dates I guess.

From what I was told by an HR person at MEM PEPC, they try to group people who are going to the same faciltiy together. As in if your KVGT bound they might delay your okc start date until they get another KVGT bound applicant to start okc with you.

Although, I think that is more for the location you are going than for you. It is a lot easier to start a couple people all at once and give them the rules and ropes than it is to start one at a time sporadically from this week to that week.

I agree and understand but I think it's funny that you use KVGT as an example becasue I don't believe there are any other people going there and their maximum staffing requirements are 15 people. From what I understand there are 13 people there now. I know there are others that are interested in going but those people just took the AT SAT 2 weeks ago. I cannot believe they would make me wait until they Interview and TOL and background check when it has already been 8 weeks since I received my TOL. That would be another 3 month wait at least.

I think that it is true for larger facilities but not so much for the little ones. I think the reason for my way still lies in the fact that my facility is not critically manned. Even though they are putting people thru the Academy form the NY PEPC before some of the LA people I think it's becasue there is a more urgent need for them.....I'm cool with that. I'll just wait it out and thank my lucky stars that I won't be overly stressed when I get to my facility!!! :rolleyes:
