[10:45] <@BSG_FAdm_Donald> Running good for now, we've recently graduated a crew member from the Vindicator. No students at this time though. The new simguide has been put on the website and we will be using the new exam that Voll created before her departure.
[10:46] <&Cmdt;_JScott> May I say the new Simguide manual and the new exam was excellent work on your and Volls part.
[10:48] <@BSG_FAdm_Donald> Thanks.. figured it was time to finally get rid of all the extra genre stuff since we've gotten it out of UCIP

[11:01] <@BSG_FAdm_Donald> I know for SOT, I've recently been added as the newest instructor due to lack of communication from the last instructor. Stormy and I are planning on updating the material for the SOT course. For XOT, I know of one student who is interested in signing up, but I don't know if he has yet or not. I don't know anything about COT.
[11:06] <&Cmdt;_JScott> Excellent Donald on the SOT and XO courses. The only thing Sto#my has indicated to me about the COT is an understood worry about the 18 hour observation I think she is think it could be shorter.
[11:07] <@BSG_FAdm_Donald> 18 hour? I thought it was 18 days?
[11:08] <@BSG_FAdm_Donald> <>
