  14. Hello all, First of all, in regards to solo validations, as outlined in the GRP, a solo validation may be given to a student for one position and for not more than one month, however it may be extended two times more, giving a total of three months. About your question regarding control to the other VATRUS FIRs,the answer is no. The paragraph 1 about Enroute Controller trainee is very clear (1. Be limited to one training Enroute sector and not approved to extend coverage to adjacent Enroute sectors, ). So your training will take place to one training sector of your current FIR. Senteniously,In order to be fully in line with the GRP, each student cannot have a solo validation for a station other than the one he will sit his practical exam on. Sergey, please leave me an email, explaining thoroughly what the problem has been in RUS and I will work with the Division Team to a solution. Best Regards,
