3rd Digit Identifies media used for training event 0 Ground Training3 Operational Training Device (OFT) 1 Flight Support4 - Aircraft 2 Unit Training Device (UTD) 4th Digit Block of training Blocks go sequentially in order (i.e. C41xx block, C42xx block) Required proficiency normally increases with each block JPPT Curriculum Guide (Glossary)
5th/6th Digit Event # in block series or other type of training 84 Adaptation usually for airsickness 85 Practice sim 86 Warmup given after a break in training 87 Extra Training (ET) usually awarded due to a training deficiency 88 Initial Progress Check (IPC) check to see ifmeeting standards 89 Final Progress Check (FPC) a final check to see if SNA can finish syl 90 Check Flight/Exam Normal check ride within each phase of training JPPT Curriculum Guide (Glossary)
Examples: C4103 C Contact Stage 4 Aircraft Event 1 1st Block of Training 03 3rd Event in Block I3204 I Instrument Stage 3 Simulator Event 2 2nd Block of Training 04 4th Event in Block SY0108 SY Systems Stage 0 Ground Training 1 1st Block of Training 08 8th Training CAI Module C4490 C Contact Stage 4 Aircraft Event 4 4thBlock of Training 90 Check ride General Instructions (Chapter I)
Grading process Established scale to document performance on maneuvers Scale compares performance to the course training standards (CTS) Grading Scale Demonstrated NG / 1 IP demonstrates the maneuver Used for solo flights where an IP cannot observe maneuvers Indicated grade for accomplishment of Special Syllabus Requirements (SSR) Unable U / 2 Performance is unsafe or lacks sufficient knowledge, skill, or ability Deviations greatly exceed CTS & corrections are extremely slow Requires constant IP coaching to accomplish skill or maneuver Fair F / 3 Performance is safe but with limited proficiency Deviations exceed CTS & corrections still lag and may not be appropriate Still requires moderate coaching General Instructions (Chapter I)
Grading Scale (cont) Good G / 4 Performance is within CTS Deviations outside of CTS may occur if they are brief, minor, & do not affect safety Corrections must be appropriate and timely Excellent E / 5 Performance greatly surpasses CTS Performance is correct, efficient, and skillful Any deviations are minor & corrections are rapid but smooth & appropriate General Instructions (Chapter I)
Maneuver Item File (MIF) The required grade for a specific maneuver that must be obtained by EOB Every stage has all blocks & maneuvers spelled out in Curriculum Guide Example:For In-flight Checks/Fuel Management, the syllabus requires youto get a grade of U/2 thru the end of the C3102 simulator block.By the end ofthe C4104 block (4 aircraft events), the syllabus now requires you to get agrade of F/3 Syllabus looks for progression of skills with more training Critical Items (Mandatory) Displayed with a + next to the required grade Mandatory to meet the required proficiency by EOB Optional Items No + with required grade If maneuver is accomplished, must meet indicated proficiency level General Instructions (Chapter I)
Grades and TIMS gradebook Each event will have a grade sheet filled out Grades are stored in your TIMS gradebook (electronically) Each grade sheet has the maneuvers, MIF, and awarded grade Example:On this event, General Knowledge/Procedures requires agrade of F/3+ by the EOB.The + makes this maneuver/grademandatory.The student was awarded a G/4 for their performance asmeasured against CTS General Instructions (Chapter I)
Overall Grade Represent the students progression through JPPT Based on performance against the MIF Overall Grades Pass Progress is adequate to meet standards by end of block (EOB) Marginal Ability to meet standards by EOB is questionable Unsatisfactory Student exhibits dangerous tendencies or progress towards meeting standards by EOB is insufficient Awarding Overall Grades Must meet MIF by EOB Prior to EOB, performance must meet/exceed previous block MIF Must not regress in grades from block to block (Regression Rule) May get an F/3 on two maneuvers where a previous block required a G/4 If more than two maneuvers awarded F/3 when previous block required a G/4 = Unsatisfactory Overall If performance on a maneuver for two consecutive events is an F/3 when a G/4 is required in previous block = Unsatisfactory Overall If any maneuver is awarded a U/2 after required grade is F/3 or G/4 in previous block = Unsatisfactory Overall General Instructions (Chapter I)
Unsatisfactory Performance Ready Room Unsat (RRU) Student performance at the briefing is unsatisfactory The flying portion of the event shall not occur Result in going directly to an Initial Progress Check (IPC) On an event If events remain in the block, student continues to the next event until the 2nd consecutive unsat or 3rd cumulative unsat in the block If no events remain in the block, student repeats last block event until the 2nd consecutive unsat or 3rd cumulative unsat in the block If student unsats a check ride, has two consecutive unsats in a row, or three cumulative unsats in a block = IPC If student unsats a subsequent check ride, has two further consecutive unsats in a row, or three cumulative unsats in a block = FPC General Instructions (Chapter I)
Warmup events (86 events) Used for breaks in training Eligibility based on the # of days since last flight or sim in the same stage Coded with phase, block & 86 (example:C4286) Warmup grades do not satisfy block required grades to progress in that block When events awarded?See table General Instructions (Chapter I)
Special Monitoring Status (SMS) Students placed in SMS to focus supervisory attention on their progress in training, specific deficiencies, and potential tocomplete the program May also relate to students resolving personal issues Intended as a short term program (set goals for removal) If student achieves required goals or personal issues resolved, student returns to normal training flow If student fails to achieve required goals or performance does not improve, student goes to an IPC or FPC General Instructions (Chapter I)
Progress Checks Used to evaluate the students potential to complete JPPT and advanced training Students first progress check is an Initial Progress Check (IPC) and labeled as Sxx88 Students second progress check is a Final Progress Check (FPC) and labeled as Sxx89 Triggers for an IPC: First RRU Second academic test failure Failed check ride Two consecutive or three cumulative unsat events in the same block Results of an IPC: Pass and return to normal syllabus flow Fail and move to an FPC Triggers for an FPC Following a failed IPC Conditions for an IPC exist but the student has already been to an IPC CO directed when the potential to complete JPPT and advanced training is in doubt Results of an FPC: Fail and move to attrition recommendation by CO Course Training Standards (CTS) (Chapter IX)
Purpose Outline the tasks and proficiency required for each maneuver Standards equates to a G/4 Aircraft control must be smooth and positive.Performance may be withinCTS and still not warrant a grade of good if inputs are delayed, erratic,imprecise or inappropriate Momentary deviations outside CTS that do not compromise safety areacceptable if corrections are timely KNOW THE COURSE TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE MANEUVERS! Ground Training (Chapter II)
Covers all of the initial training to be accomplished prior to flight line ops Goes through and defines: Gxxxx Ground event CAI and classes SYxxxx Systems CAI and classes PRxxxx Procedures CAI and classes Lists prerequisites - items that must be accomplished prior to moving on Stage Training Sections (Chapters IV-VIII)
Different stage chapters (Contact, Instrument, etc.) Each stage chapter starts with overall MIF grid Gives overall snapshot of stage Shows expectations of skill set proficiency advancement for each maneuver Shows all the various training blocks in the stage Breaks out simulator, aircraft, and check flight events After MIF grid, stage chapter will break out each individual training block Stage Training Sections (Chapters IV-VIII)
Breakouts for each block of training (i.e. C21xx, C41xx block, etc.) Does not get very specific to each individual event in the block List prerequisites that must be accomplished prior to beginning the block Lists syllabus notes as to what will be accomplished on various block events ifany required Lists Special Syllabus Requirements (SSRs) that need to be accomplished if anyrequired Lists discussion items by event in block Stage Training Sections (Chapters IV-VIII)
Each block section breaks out all the graded maneuvers and required MIF byEOB Grades for a block are always expectations by EOBnot per event Topics Covered JPPT Curriculum Guide General Instructions
