Hi all,

I recently passed the first two stages of the new process and am waiting on the release of dates for the interview. Just a couple of questions really.

1. How often do the interview dates become available

2. When do the courses start or is there no set start time?

Thanks guys

Lewis.

Appreciate the reply

Glad to have a better idea on the time frame I can expect to start in order for me to be able to save appropriately for that time

People do drop out of courses though for different reasons so you may also be offered an earlier date...

Hi Obscure Paradox,
Congratulations for passing the first two stages.

If I can ask you to help me with some information, if it is possible, regarding the stage 2 tests as I did not find any info for the stage 1 from the new process.

That's all.

It seems that all dates for stage 3 are full for 2019. As far as I understood there will not be any new dates for testing this year. The question is if we who haven't got any date yet will have any chance to get into the training that starts in January or March.

Probably one of the last on the old process but having had my stage 3 on Monday I'm overjoyed to say I passed! 2 trips to Hampshire from Sydney in as many months didn't go to waste afterall

Told it'll likely be a January start date but wont know for sure until August(ish), anyone else in the same boat?

Hey,

I also was successful at the very start of April with the old process. Was told exactly the same information as you. I have my medical booked in July but it was a long wait so get booked in early!

And congratulations to you 😉

Congratulations to you too, great achievement!

I wont be back to the motherland until the back end of the year anyway so have plenty of time but thanks for the heads up.

Will be checking in and updating on here as things start to become clear so it'll be good to get to know some people potentially on the same course before the actual start date

Hi There,

I completed S1 of the new recruitment process last Friday 17th May and I haven't heard anything back yet regarding the results.

Does anyone know who done S1, how long do they take to let you know the outcome?

Much appreciated.

Hey there, took me 2 days to get a reply after my stage 1. Though to be fair if there is someone who looks over and processes the first stage you may have to wait another day or two as they could be working days so to speak. Hope you get a reply soon and good luck!

Hi there! Have you heard anything about stage 3? The info I got was that all dates for 2019 was fully booked so we will have to them next year?

Next year?! I sat the stage 2 in April, got an invite for stage 3 at the very start of May and managed to get booked for 10th June. Either there are a huge number of people passing stages 1 and 2 or they are massively limiting the size and frequency of stage 3 dates.

I'd keep checking every week or so and see if any open up due to drop outs/NATS opening them.

From what others have said, even if you pass stage 3, the course start dates aren't until Jan 2020 at the earliest. Then again, working a long notice is better than not knowing haha

As Trev mentioned a few posts ago, drop outs do happen.
I found out I'd passed in October '18, and I finally start in July. Yes, the wait has been mildly excruciating, but if it's right for you, then the inconvenience will hopefully be a distant memory!

You said the march course is more probable. Is that the CTC course (Whiteley)?

Anyone know what date the Global course in July starts this year?

Those are the 2019 dates for Global not 2020. Those are also Globals own course dates. Not NATS dates.

Today I got an email from NATS confirming that all Stage 3 dates for 2019 were full and I will be invited for Stage 3 in 2020. They've "received an overwhelming number of applications". Doesn't sound too good for the probability to get in but it's worth a shot, right.
