Training Bid Structure 

When you first navigate to the training bid screen you will see an empty bid with three system-generated bid lines. Adding Training Bid Preferences is the same as adding bid preferences into Pairing and Reserve bid groups.

Start Training

Start Training is always at the start of the bid and cannot be moved or edited. This bid line instructs the N-PBS Scheduler to begin building a training block.

Avoid Voluntary Training

Avoid Voluntary Training cannot be edited but it can be moved anywhere in your bid between Start Training and Award Training. This bid tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you do not want to be awarded training if you are not required to. However, you can be forced voluntary Training based on settings placed by your administrator and your Seniority.

You cannot avoid Voluntary Training if your Training Requirement is Must Go.

Award Training

Award Training is always at the end of your bid and cannot be edited or moved. This bid means Award Any Item if a training pattern must be awarded and earlier bids do not express any preference.
