  • Targeted Credit Range (TCR)
  • Coverage Needed (CN) days

  • Line average
  • Pairing properties vs. line properties (including waivers)

  • 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.
