Maggie Island, you seem to be spot on. Doesn't look like we would hear anything until next year, now that it's only a week to Christmas!

Hi everyone, I've recently applied also.
Does anyone know how many enroute/tower trainees
Airservices intend on recruiting in 2018. Obviously there's
a tower and enroute course starting in January 2018 but would love
to know what the rest of 2018 is looking like.
Cheers.

Wotma and Cirrus8,

You are not alone, have had the same issue yesterday. Did send the technical support an email as mentioned in the Online Assessment invite email. Lets see what happens, please keep us posted here.

I received the following feedback from CEB Technical Support:

Airservices is currently experiencing a system issue and the links in their candidates' profiles have disappeared. They are attempting to fix the issues. Once the issue has been fixed, you should receive another email regarding the second test link soon. If you don't receive the email by the end of today, please contact your recruiter Airservices Australia directly for further information.

Okay thanks for the heads up. I just completed my OPQ and have sent Airservices an email asking if they can resend the remaining online testing again.

Hello everyone,

I have received an (invitation) assessment email again on Monday 15th morning and another email in the evening saying about an error regarding the test and wait for further instructions. I also found 3 links 2 assessment and 1 OPQ !!
Is 17th Deadline still valid? Is anyone in same position?

I daresay that as long as you got past the mandated minimum responses that your hat will still be in the ring! I have a feeling that these tests will be used mostly for selection purposes post-interview.

On the other hand, word on the street is that the OPQ can scrub you out pretty quick if you donít fit the AsA mould

Deadlines should remain the 17th unless you got an extention, hopefully this means theyíre trying to move quickly from this point on!? (Donít hold your breath tho!)

EMail from Airservices Australia: The online testing timeframe has been extended to midnight Friday 19 January 2017 & Some applicants may notice 3 tests in their applicant portal (2x Ability Testing & 1x OPQ), if this affects you, please ensure you complete only 1 Ability Test and the OPQ Test.
All the best guys.

Given this is a rumour network then there were apparently 30,000 applications and 300 invited to the next stage of OPQ and Ability Testing.
Apparently the job search on www omitted the word 'Air" so there were literally thousands of "traffic controller" "lollypop backpackers" applying. Oh dear!!

where do you come across information like that!?

Also; i know there have been issues with it, but tonight just completed the Ability testing but still waiting for the OPQ banner to reappear. Been nearly an hour. was hoping it'd be sooner as tonight was my best chance in terms of available time to complete these.

Just wondering how long everyone had to wait for the OPQ assessment to be available after completing their Ability testing?
