Hi Doug:

You absolutely didn't step out of line or violate any policies; no worries.  While the forums are a great place to get some help from the community, these kinds of questions are better addressed to the staff at the ARTCC you're assigned to. Community responses are not guaruanteed to be accurate or timely, whereas ours are.

Our community on Discord is full of current and former students who, I'm sure, will be happy to assist you as well (probably with a greater degree of accuracy than those in the larger division :D).

Hi Doug:

I'll start by reminding you that these forums should not be used as the primary method of communication with ZJX or its staff.  While we do actively monitor them, you're likely to see a delay in response compared to messages sent to us on Discord or emailed to us.  We encourage you to make use of our resources, rather than relying on the forums.

You will not receive an email after your CBTs have been completed, but you are on the right track otherwise; the training staff member you meet with for your first session will provide you with a few additional resources and will answer any questions you still have, but there's nothing additional you must do before that session.  If you're looking for things to do to help you get better prepared, we're happy to provide some materials before the session - just let one of our staff know and we'll get that to you.

Since you asked; you need not complete the CBTs for becoming an instructor (though you should feel free to if you're interested :D ).

Please feel free to let us know (again - preferably not via the forums) if you have any other questions.

Hi Doug!

Welcome to VATUSA (and to ZJX)!  When you download the myservers file from the link on the CBT, you shouldn't need to open it; simply place it in the base VRC directory (folder) where you should also see a "servers" text file (among others).  If you're still having trouble, please let one of our staff know directly.  You can reach us via email or (preferably) join the facility Discord server.

I'm pretty sure the local time for Florida is (4p - 7p.) Orlando is in EST

We were made aware of the issue... Turns out this event was planned (and the banner made) before the daylight savings swap. Sorry for the confusion!  :D
