Ive just sent an email to the adress given in the OP. I hope it is still active. Sent a request for training to vatsim scandinavia a month ago, and got confirmation that they received it but that the waiting times were too long to estimate. 

Hi Andreas, 

While there's not much light shed on it, a lot has happened within ATC training since this post was created and the training hotline existed. Back then (2010) a month was an incredibly long time to wait, and its purpose was to deal with inefficient mentors and instructors, or very inefficient training systems.

However, in a decade VATSIM has grown exponentially, and so has VATSIM Scandinavia. As of right now, there are a vast amount of people in queue for training in Norway. With all of the staff and mentors doing this on a voluntary basis, it doesn't really matter how much the Norwegian word "Dugnad"  matters; queues will unfortunately be long.

There are several things happening in the Norwegian FIR, and we are currently in the process of making our S1 students eligible to control delivery and ground positions, in order to make the wait a bit shorter.

I know it sucks, but the wait is definitely worth it. 🙂

Note as well that die to the global situation during these past months there has been a HUGE increase on training requests across the whole network, so it’s not something odd at the time of writing this post that you have to wait a few months after sending the initial email to get training.
