    I am guessing that you are wondering how to get of stay current after getting your rating.  The 6-6-H.I.T. currency rule applies, 6 approaches within 6 months including Holding Intercepting and Tracking.  You can do this in actual conditions or under the hood.  It isn’t necessary to do it under the hood with an instructor on board.  You can draft a safety pilot who is qualified to fly the airplane to be an observer in the right seat and look out for traffic.  Make sure when you log the time as simulated instrument time, that you note the name of your safety pilot in your log as well.
