I had a few questions regarding sweatbox training for the S1 checkout. Thanks!
-How early in advance should I request training? Is three days enough or should it be longer?
-How long should I plan to be training?
-How much traffic could one expect? Do instructors push recruits to the limit or give them a normal dose of Friday night traffic?
-About how long will I have to plan what I say before the instructor asks for clearance? (Would it be a minute or two or immediate thus relying on memory)
-How hard is it? Yes I know is subjective, but I was just curious how other controllers fared their first times.
-To wrap this up, are there any tips you might have?
Thanks for the help in advance. I was debating what artcc to join, but when talking with some members, I think I made the right choice.
