Check ride phase

Hey guys. I know this is an IFATC term but what exactly does this mean? This is the first time I saw it on the ATC topic.

Means your on probation for the specialist role. Quicker terms means: your upgrading to Specialist.

When you pass the written and practical, you are only able to open Charlie airports when first starting. After some practice, they issue a Check Ride for a week where they monitor what you have learned to see if you can control Class Bravo Airports. If you pass your check ride, you can continue to open class Bravo and become an IFATC Specialist, if you do not, you must practice more and only can open Charlies.
