Word from SBY is "one to three months in the pool"....Could be less, probably not more.
Don't know how many are in the pool now, but someone on here had said that it was emptied out in the beginning of this month.

Is this because of the holidays? How long is the ground school?

Yea, its part of the AQP Program!! It saves them a week of Ground School! So you only do 2 weeks of ground. The disk contains FOM or Company Polices, and Aircraft systems. You basically do an open book test before you come to ground school.

is it even worth it to pursue piedmont. if you wash out of training that stays with you and can hurt the possibility of other job opportunities.

CrashmBern:

What do you mean is it work it to pursue piedmont? You can't hit a homerun without swinging first, right? Your chance at Piedmont is the same as any other regional.... you fail training at let's say ExpressJet, that's on your record too... so I'm a little confused as to what you were talking about??

it just seems as though piedmont almost wants to fail people. i don't have much experience with 121 training, but 3 out of 14 people failing systems seems pretty high to me.

any word on when the next class may be.

3 out of 14 doesnt seem like a lot, and besides, this may have been the straw that broke the camels back. They might have been weak in other areas and systems just ended it for them.
