Preferential Bid System (PBS) Training and Refresher Class

On Friday, October 14th, from 11am until 4pm (ET), APFA DCA will offer a PBS refresher training class. The PBS refresher will be held in the HUB Gathering Room in Concourse C (formally center pier). You may join the class either in person or virtually via Microsoft® Teams.

Please bring your iPad or Laptop to access your own PBS bidding and to follow along. The class will review all aspects of PBS bidding including but not limited to:

  • Targeted Credit Range (TCR)
  • Coverage Needed (CN) days
  • Minimum and maximum constraints
  • Line average
  • Pairing properties vs. line properties (including waivers)
  • Reserve bidding
  • Holiday bidding and logic
  • Award process logic, including PN, LN, and pairing shuffle
  • Vacation and ‘vacation low’
  • Misaward process and more!

Our DCA PBS Specialists, Beth and Liz, will conduct the class with the aid of our visual power points.

We’ll have a question and answer period, and will break down our PBS summary to help you understand the logic behind the numbers.

Lineholders and Reserves are both welcome to attend, and if you can’t make it in person, you can join via Microsoft® Teams from home or on your layover.

Please watch for the official invite base brief. and the link and instructions to join via Microsoft® Teams.

See you in October!

In Solidarity,
