Hello,
I start at Airservices tomorrow (14/1) as an enroute trainee and was just enquiring if there was still a room available?
Also I was wondering where abouts the house was located and if any other trainees had contacted you?
Thankyou very much in advance and I am quite interested so if you were available for an inspection sometime soon that would be great!
Kind regards,
Geoff

Hi I was wondering if anyone here is a RAAF ATC, current or ex?
Or even someone who is going through the recruitment process.
Cheers

Hi,

Can you describe the online test questions you had? Are they very similar to the practice tests at the SHL Direct site?

And can anyone share other sites with suitable practice tests that will genuinely help us prepare? After doing those SHL Direct ones a few times I just start to memorise the answers.

Thanks

Yes, haven't heard anything yet. I guess we probably won't until applications close.

A little guidance please !!

Hi everyone ,

Appreciate all your help i can get ..

1. To qualify for the training programme they ask for year 12/ Diploma or Degree.

--Is any Diploma issued by a recognized college accepted ?
--do they look for the field of study and specially the length of study??


2. What is the remuneration during training in melbourne ? Please give me figures ?

thanx heaps

Hi guys,

I am busy applying as well, just waiting for my resume to be done. Have no idea what to expect, but hoping to get in. On my way over there from South Africa, so figured I may as well try to get back into aviation while i'm busy turning my world on its head.

Does anyone know how long after online assessments the site assessments will be? And how long after that we'll know if we're in or not? It would make my immigration plans easier if I knew for sure where I was going to, i.e. Melbourne or somewhere warmer..
I have read through the history on here but it seems verrrry variable. Sometimes days, sometimes months.

Sachcho, as far as I know the only reason they require a recent qualification is to show that you have the ability to study a large volume of theory work in a set time. I also don't believe that the field of study matters too much, but this is only an assumption. Then as far as remuneration, if I recall correctly I read somewhere that its around AUD$53k per year while training in Melbourne (12-14months), then AUD$73k while practical training at destination facility (3-6months), then AUD$104k once you receive your rating. This is more or less what I remember, not sure of exact figures at all.

Good luck for the process!
Regards, Gavin

Like you said it can be really variable but typically can expect anywhere from a few weeks to 2 or 3 months after your online assessments until the assessment day and then 2 to 3 weeks after that to find out whether you've made the cut.

Okay great, do you know how long approximately after online assessments we will know whether we will be invited to site assessment?

ATC waiting period

Hey guys!
First time applying for ATC and just recently sent my application. I'm wondering, do the online tests usually come straight after the deadline or is there a waiting period? Just want to get it over and done with :/ Looking forward to your correspondences!

2/3 months is generally standard, though you could expect that to increase whenever HRs busy. Out of curiosity - do you already have Permanent Residency??

Hi Maggie,
Yes I have unrestricted permanent residence as of May actually. It was quite a process and a long wait, but the visa came through just a week after applications opened, luckily.
