  • CAS Training Class --- SIGN UP THREAD 2100GMT 7-18-2011


    Basic
    Close Air Support
    Joint Terminal Attack Controller Overview:


    Class will be SUNDAY THE 17th!!! not 18th sorry for confusion
    NOTE: As of right now this is not associated with TGU I just used their primer because it is so good :P
    DATE AND TIME: "21:00:00 GMT Sunday July 17, 2011"

    Players will be required for TeamSpeak roll call in the TGU channel 30 minutes before the module.
    Anyone who is not present 10 minutes before the scheduled start time will be counted as absent and will be disallowed from participating in the next module run for the game in which the module was missed.

    Module Name:Basic CAS/JTAC
    Prerequisite: None
    Instructor:|TG| CharlesDarwin

    What not to post:
    "What time will it be in my time zone?"
    Work it out.
    "Are non-supporting members allowed to participate?" Yes. However, supporting members get priority.
    "It's not fair! I keep getting pushed out by Supporting Members!" Become one.
    "Can you change the date?" No, the date is confirmed.
    "I'm on the reserve list. How good are my chances of playing if I show up?" Decent. There will inevitably be a few cancellations before the session and there can be one or two no-shows on the day of the session.


    Quick Session Information
    Date:
    ”Sunday July 17, 2011”
    Time:"21:00:00 GMT"
    Be on Teamspeak By:"20:30:00 GMT"
    Estimated Duration:"60-90 Minutes"
    Server: IP/Password Given in Teamspeak
    Module:"Basic CAS/JTAC"
    Number of Students:"Up to 10 per class"
    Credit badge: none



    Ground Rules:
    CHECK FIRE! Once on the server, hold your fire until specifically instructed to do so. This is very important so that your instructor can address everyone without background noise of weapons fire or explosions.
    Listen to your instructor and follow their directions. It is important that everyone listen to the instructor and be ready to follow instructions so that the material in the module can be covered in a timely manner. The more the instructor has to be off-topic the longer the module will take to complete.
    Minimize Com Chatter. Questions are greatly encouraged as part of the learning process, but many people may have questions at once. If you have a question or comment, simply type a request such as "question" or "comment" in the in-game chat and your instructor will call on you and let you have the com when they are able.



    How Spots Are Assigned:

    The first priority will be given to Supporting Members above non-Supporting Members. After that, People who have attended a TGU Basic Infantry course over those who have not. People who haven't attend a Basic Infantry course are allowed to sign up but will not be awared a badge until they passed or are written off by a instructor.

    A reserve list will be made up when all the playing spots are filled. Supporting members, once again, have priority. When a player with a spot cancels, they will be replaced by the first person on the reserve list.

    How to Sign Up
    IMPORTANT!

    Players who no-show without notice for a session will be precluded from participating in the following session for the game where they were absent. Don't let your team mates down! Only sign up if you can make it. Because class spaces are limited, please don't take a spot unless you're confident you can play.



    To sign up, please simply reply with the following two items of information:
    1) In house squad (unaffiliated if none)
    2) Your in-game name.




    Please reply to this message with the above information if you wish to sign up.
    Players will be signed up on a first-come first-served basis.
    Supporting Members get precedence in the order they sign up, then Non-Supporting Members afterwards. Your SM status at the time of signup determines which list you will be on. Once you post, you cannot become a SM later to work your way up the list.
    You can pull out, but if you reconfirm, you will find yourself at the bottom of the roster.
    You may not hand over your spot to another specific player. Your spot will be given to the next available player.

    **************************************
