      Hi
      I have decided to come back to the dark...I mean controlling side and having passed the S2 several years ago, is there a way to go over the info needed (I have some but not all)  or do I need to go through the training system again from OBS? I have had a look at the training pages but couldn't see the S2 part, just the OBS>S1.
      All the best

      Hi all,
       
      We will be hosting a seminar for all S1 rated controllers in the division on Thursday 7th February 2019 at 19:00-20:00. This seminar's purpose is to make sure that all ground controllers are competent in flightplanning and validating existing flightplans on the network. We are hosting this seminar after numerous pieces of feedback submitted, showing that some controllers have a lack of knowledge in this area. We therefore strongly recommend this seminar.
      You can join via the "Seminars" page under the "Students" tab on the CTS.

      In a similar spirit to @Harry Sugden's EuroScope 'tricks' thread, and following a few requests from members, I thought it might be helpful to collate some general 'hints and tips' on controlling: how you can make life easier for yourself and for other controllers!
      To start, here's a couple which I've been asked about recently:
      Logging on/off
      When you connect to the network, drop a quick message to the people controlling around you, just to let them know you're there and to find out what you need to know - they can't give you your traffic if they don't know you're online!
      And when you disconnect from the network, to remember everything you need to tell a controller who's taking over, try using PRAWNS:
      Pressure - is it high or low? What's the current MSL? (more appropriate for APC/ACC) Roles - where will the next controller be taking over? Who else is also online? Airports - which runways are in use? Weather - has wind shear or turbulence been reported to you anywhere? Are you in LVPs or safeguarding? What's the wind doing? Non-standard - have any other controllers put things in place: maybe a 'check west' or something similar? Is anyone doing something a bit different to what you'd usually expect? Situation - does the next controller have a good enough awareness of the current situation to take-over? Is there any other information you could tell them which would help? If they're busy or you need to get off quickly, why not drop them a text message so that they can read through it when they've got time? The more informative (but 'to the point') you can be, the easier it is for whoever's taking over your frequency!
      @Arvid Hansson has written some extra information on co-ordination below, as well!
      Scratchpads
      There's a lot of common notations that people like to use, but there's none that you absolutely have to follow: when it gets busy, having a convention for yourself can really help you to keep on-top of the situation! Just remember to clear the scratchpad before you pass the aircraft on to the next controller so they don't get confused!
      Anyone got anything else they'd like people to know? If there's something you've found which is really helpful (whatever it is), or if there's something you just wish people would do to make your life easier, this is the place to put it!

      Will there be any radar seminars coming up, as there hasn't been one since October and I think it would be beneficial for those students who is in the waiting list awaiting a training place.

      Hi,
      I have been away from vatsim uk for about a year and half due to my father being ill and having to look after him, before I left I was doing S3 training on EGGD_APP, and I was wondering where I need to go to restart. Since I have been away the website and training system has all changed and also all the old regional forums seem to have dissapeared. I realise that I won't just be able to pick up from where I have left off, hence the need to start up the training again, so I have been jumping on EGFF_TWR for the last week to get me back up to some sort of speed.
      Some advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Mark
