Hello all my name is Dean Frazier and I am brand new to VATSIM/VATUSA and I currently took the ATC S1 exam and passed.  I did receive the email saying that a copy of the email was sent to the training staff but was wondering when I would receive any word/notification concerning the actual training?  Thank you in advance and I am eagerly looking forward to beginning my training.

Hi Dean,

From experience it can take 2-3 days for the ARTCC to do everything they need to do before sending you an email saying you’ve been accepted and added to the roster.

The short answer... it’s just a waiting game :)

Dean,

First welcome to VATUSA! I saw that you have passed your basic ATC exam assigned by the division but you have not yet chosen an ARTCC to join. Under the My Profile dropdown on VATUSA’s website there should be a link that says join a facility. Feel free to reach out to any ARTCCs you may be interested in joining to get a better feel if it will be a good fit for you. Look forward to seeing you on the scopes soon!
