Not sure who's the SB guru around VATSIM; however, there's an "issue" that may hold up ATC Training.

 

On 1/1/08 we're all going to the new Global Ratings Standard adopted by the EC.

 

However, it seems that the VATSIM SB server is set up to only allow C1 and above to host a session for training purposes. A lot of ARTCC/FIR/VACC's have Mentors at the S3 level that host DEL-TWR SB sessions. Once promotion to C1 is limited to CTR only, we're gonna have a LOT of Mentors than can't really do anything.

 

Wondering if VATSIM has any plans to open up the SB server to S3 or is there any way we can open it to particular CID's or something?

Relaxing the SB server restrictions is being discussed, yes.

Ross,

 

Does this include giving consideration to allowing people with an OBS (level 1) rating to connect to the Sweatbox server in a valid control position? This would allow divisions to both train & [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ess their members prior to issuing the Student (or soon-to-be-TWR) rating. I queried this about a year ago and at the time it was not possible; although I don't know whether that was for technical or policy reasons.

 

Cheers,
