Loan with Co-op bank

Hi Guys...and Gal...for those who have successfully applied..what is this about a 5.4m loan with co-operative bank?. I thought KQ was to settle all the costs during the training. Who has an idea?

5.4M loan

The 5.4M loan is the amount of money per person that Kenya Airways loans from Co-operative bank to train the cadets who get selected into the AB Initio programme.

Hey Mutisya,I dont know why ours were terminated.The new application is no different,its not been activated since yesterday so I guess we have to contact the programme co-ordinator and await her guidance on the matter.

On Friday as well i recieved a phone call from a lady in KQ who wanted to confirm my attendance.Any one out there who has recieved an email or a phone call to this effect...?For those with whom i share the dream of being in the cockpit one day,its my prayer and wish that this becomes our first step towards achieving it.

Hi guys, want to first say that this forum is proving to be really useful, we should ensure that we keep it alive.
I am among the guys who did today's aptitude test, around 100people showed up, this test really requires a lot of speed and accuracy.
Next test is the Psychometric test, would anyone mind filling me up on what to expect?? As for those who are also undergoing the interview process good luck to ya'll!!! Hope we will make it down south!

@flyingjuggernut.Hello,the psychometric test is basically a test of your hand,eye and feet co-ordination.The most important aspect of it is relaxation and accuracy.

Has anyone else received and email on 7th June 2011 requesting them to scan and send a copy of their KCSE certificate?

Psychometric test

@captain Joe..I think you are taking about the psychomotor test..the psychometric test is more of an aptitude test but requires one to be more faster,a morrisby profile test to be specific..have you been invited for the first interview?

Just got the second invite for the psychometric test tomorrow. This whole short notice thing is very inconveniencing. (But I'm not complaining!)

@flyingjuggernaut,my bad but thank you for the correction.The psycho motor test mainly utilises a joystick where you'll be seated behind a monitor that has two lines crossing each other while the screen is moving.The aim is for one to maintain the two lines at the centre.This could also involve flying a mini aircraft.

I'm still waiting for that all important email.

However,this is from the observations I've been conducting on other recruitment processes so if anyone has a different view feel free to comment.

For assistance just visit YouTube and search for videos for the recruitment into the Royal Airforce (RAF).This will give you an idea of it.

Good luck to all those waiting to sit the psycho motor test
