Article V: Training


Throughout their training programs, the Russian cosmonauts will be based at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, and will be assigned to the Astronaut Office in the Flight Crew Operations Directorate. The NASA astronauts will be based at Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Facility ("Star City") in the Moscow Region.


At the beginning of the training programs, each Party will require its candidates to enter into a Standards of Conduct Agreement with the other Party, which will include, inter alia, installation safety and security matters, provisions related to prohibitions on use of position for private gain, authority of the Mission Commander, and limitations on use of information received during training and flight. Each Party will ensure that its candidates comply with the provisions of such an agreement.


The candidates will have completed all aspects of the required training to the full and final satisfaction of the host Party prior to certification for flight.


By mutual agreement, the Parties will identify any support personnel required for the flight candidates selected.
