feedback

I might call them.. Sent them a follow up email.. thought that would be enough... It's all about being patient and waiting I guess.

Online Testing

Hi all,
Finally submitted my application two days ago and today got an email invitation for the online testing that has to be completed prior to the 20th. This is probably one of the most asked questions here, but can anyone advise of what to expect by way of questions, subjects etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is one of the most asked questions here - therefore, if you go back through this thread you'll find all the answers you need.

WhichWayIsNorth or any other Experienced Air Traffic Controller applicants for Sydney and Perth.

I know that the majority of applications sumbitted near the deadline went under review around the 6th of December. I was just wondering if anyone falling into this category had received any contact from AirServices since.

Thanks!

No haven't heard anything further yet. Application status changed online to "Application under review" on the 3rd but haven't had any communication. Are you also awaiting a reply from ASA?

With a Xmas/New Year break approaching then applicants for SYD and PER shouldn't expect to hear anything until at least the 8th January at the very earliest, most likely 14th January. Its just the way it is...

Online assessment

Can anyone tell me the duration of the initial online assessment test? I plan to do it tonight as completion is required by the 20th.

I'm still all go with the experienced ATC position stuff; my interview is in two hours!!

VH-ALX you could probably bash out the online testing in 2.5-3 hours if you went for it, but I slowed it down and had a break between each test to "try" and stay as fresh as possible-ended up taking half a day on it.

Didn't find it too bad-personally found the calculation one at the end the hardest. I got into a nasty habit at one point of working out the answer, typing it in and then running out of time so I couldn't hit submit! Ahhh well.

Cheers, should be good fun. Don't have a clue what they're going to ask so here's hoping.

Are you applying for the experienced positions or an ab-initio one??

I think that's a good idea to wait, Canadiangal... it may or may not be something you can change or improve on.

And if it IS something you can change - forewarned is forearmed!

VH-ALX - have you done the texts yet? Unsure if it's changed, but when I did them, taking a break inbetween was not an option It was pretty full-on. Good luck!

Doing the tests this morning Kiwi, will post when I have completed them. I was cramming some numerical problems prior so that at least all the equations are clear before I attempt them.

Haha, I'd like to see your thoughts on that once you've done the test - and make sure you have a calculator!! I didn't and it made for some very interesting times, interspersed with quite a few swearwords.

funny

The funny thing is Kiwichick, somehow I managed to be able to get in and do a job that is quite similar in Canada... air traffic services, flight service specialist... same selection process as Air traffic controllers etc.. And I was very good at my job But somehow, I managed to screw up at the assessment centre in Australia! Will see what they say.. I have my money on the spatial reasoning test.. Computer was a bit glitchy during that one.. They experienced computer problems all day during our assessment...
