Avoid Voluntary Training

Avoid Voluntary is ignored if training events need to be filled and bidders with more seniority have avoided voluntary training. Your administrator sets a requirement for the minimum May Go that must be filled. The administrator also sets the Junior Assign status to each training pattern, if a pattern is set as Junior Assign the N-PBS Scheduler must award all of the seats on the pattern.

The placement of the Avoid Voluntary Training bid is important. This bid tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you would prefer to get no training, unless a training pattern is ranked as preferred based on your Award, Avoid, or Prefer Off bids above it. If you are still awarded a training pattern, this bid is ignored and your entire bid is used to award you a training pattern.

Start Training

  1. Prefer Off Jun 20, 2011

  2. Avoid Training If Equipment Type 2

  3. Award Training If Start Time > 15:00
    Avoid Voluntary Training

  4. Award Training If Training Starts June 15, 2011

Award Training

Avoid Voluntary Training after bid 3 tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you would prefer no voluntary training event if it cannot award you training that starts after 15:00 that gives you June 20th off while avoiding equipment type 2. If you cannot avoid voluntary training, the N-PBS Scheduler will attempt to award training that starts June 15.

Note: Avoid Voluntary Training is ignored if your training requirement is Must Go.
