It may be interesting to note that the cosmonauts have not done any underwater training for this EVA for the simple reason that the neutral buoyancy facility at Star City has been out of action for maintenance since late 2014. The sole way of simulating EVAs now is to use a simulator called Vykhod-2 (Egress-2), which was introduced in 2002. Here's a video showing cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev undergoing training in the simulator:

The next thing on the timeline, I think, is translating to Zvezda and taking images of the SKK No. 9
exposure package, and installed the Impakt package.
