Congrats! I'll see you in March Also got into enroute.

I did mine on the 10th. The day was a lot of fun though (well, I thought so!)
Echoing your sentiments - at one stage the entire group on the day were talking, and everybody I spoke to did the same thing many of us are on here for - frantically searching the internet for ANY information on the assessments, only to see the comments of 'you can't prepare for it'. After we had gone through a few tests we all agreed that while those comments were infuriating at the time, they're completely correct. Get a good night sleep and get there early enough that you don't risk getting stuck in traffic and stressing out.

Good luck to everybody applying for the role.

They reached out in mid-November and did another round of assessment from the June applicants on the Monday (10) and Tuesday (11) just passed; for the March en-route intake. I went on 10/12; there were 7 of us on Monday but I was the only one who made it to the Interview Stage (5 were sent home after lunch) and my references have been contacted by ASA already. I'm not sure how big and how successful the Tuesday group was. Now just waiting for an email/call to advise if I made it through or not.

Interesting. Well done on getting through so far!
Now, you still need to be patient; even after the reference check it still took some time, might have been a couple of weeks, to receive the notification by email (initially they said end of the week but it took longer). Anxious wait I'm sure!

Hey guys, congrats to all who have been offered a place on courses next year.

If anyone starting January is looking for a place, there is a room available at a share house 15 mins drive from the airport. You will be sharing with 2 en route students who are about half way through the training.

Feel free to message for more details.

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
