Describe the recommendations of an ARB and who has final disposition
The ARB will recommend one of three recommendations:

a. Continue in Training. This recommendation is appropriate when the student is deemed capable of achieving learning objectives without additional time in training. The board may recommend academic probation with terms specific to the individual case, and may recommend a focused remediation program.

b. Setback. Setback to a later class is an option when the student is clearly motivated and has the potential to complete the program if additional time and assistance are provided. Setback can be with or without remediation. In the former case, a structured and focused plan of remediation will be provided for the student. Setback increases total training costs, but is justified if it enables the student to achieve the learning objectives.

c. Drop from Training. In the judgment of the board, the student is unable or unwilling to achieve the learning objectives of the program or function effectively and safely in the job specialty.
