Reading through this thread I thought it would be quite accessible since so many people have suggested you try to visit a tower before the interview but I guess that must have been years ago and times have changed. Oh well.. but thanks anyway atleast I tried

Yeah it used to happen, they used to have pilot information nights on-site and all that kind of thing. No more, as far as I'm aware. Stef Drury on youtube has done videos of his recent visits to towers and en-route centres if you want a bit of a general glimpse.

+1 to Stef's videos, if I recall he's gotten access into Melbourne, Sydney, and Hamilton Island towers. Plus Both Melbourne and Brisbane Centres, probably the best vids you can find on YouTube. Still very generic, they aren't going to explain any operational things but a glimpse behind the scenes nonetheless. I also have the assessment centre next week and the best advice everyone seems to give is just go in with a relaxed open mind. ASA have sent a couple emails explaining exactly how the day is going to go and what to expect. Ultimately they want you to succeed to the best of your abilities.

It's a big assessment week this week. Good luck to everyone heading to assessment centre's in Melbourne, Sydney, or anywhere else they might be happening. I'm heading to Melbourne Centre on Thursday.

It's worth a reminder that we're not competing against each other. We can each make it through on our own merit. Get a good rest the night before and do your best. May we all pass with flying colours

Assessment and tower visit

At Melbourne Centre they used to have pilot visits, which would include operational room and simulator. They don't usually let people in the tower anymore for various reasons.

Ty all,
No other communication after the references,
They mentioned at our assessment centre the next enroute course was October and tower in December from memory (also that the enroute course in July was full).
Pretty sure they said something about trying to give 4 months notice before course if possible so hoping to hear something back in the next month about a start date. Looking back at previous posts in this thread a few guys were getting a bit sketched out about submitting references and not hearing back for a month or so after.

Same for me! Haven't heard back from them after the RefX check after the assessment day on the 9th of May at BNE. : )
Appears to be everyone is waiting on it anyway, so it should be fine.

I got an email on the 2 May, the day after doing my video interview, to say that I'd progressed to the assessment centers, but that they did not have a confirmed date for the AC and that my application was on active hold.

Is anybody else here in the same boat?

Hey Tysonus,
I got the same email on the same day as you. Now anxiously waiting for a date. But having read some of the earlier posts I wouldn't be overly surprised if we're waiting until September.

Same here. Asked for references the day after the assessment centre (11th). Xref sorted asap and just waiting now.
