According to the training schedule, cosmonauts and astronauts were given an introductory briefing and after checking spacesuits for leak they transferred to the spacecraft where they made a fit check of seat liners. Under the supervision of specialists the prime and backup crews checked the equipment with which they would work in space, got acquainted with onboard documentation, studied the flight program and the cargo planned for delivery to the ISS.

During the final training sessions the following is planned to be provided at the cosmodrome: training in manual berthing of the spacecraft to the ISS, control of science hardware kits, testing of forthcoming ballistic operations and other preparatory procedures.
