If it's any help to you guys, my timeline from references onward is below:

Early Nov/2022 - XRef References go out
30th of Nov/2022 - Application on hold over holidays
Early April/2023 - Verbal offer
Mid April/2023 - Written offer & online onboarding
10th of July/2023 - Start date

From what I've read here, XRef is a pretty good sign you're through. (But I don't work for P&C so don't book flights over yet).

It went quickly! And who knows, it could be a lot shorter for you guys without the holiday shutdown slowing down P&C.

They mentioned an October enroute intake at the assessment centre and a Dec tower potentially.
Hopefully most of us are in either of those and find out in the next month or two.

Thanks for sharing this. If you don't mind me asking, were you asked to do your medical before the verbal offer? If so, where did it fit in the timeline you mentioned?

When I was at the assessment centre, they only mentioned that there was the October, December and February intakes mentioned. I don't remember them mentioning for which streams each one was, and so thanks for sharing what the streams are for October and December. By chance do you remember if they mentioned what stream the February intake was?

Nah last thing was an email on the 13th saying they will be in touch over the next few weeks.
If calls have started going out today hopefully everyone from the may assessments gets a call in the next week for some of these end of year courses.

If you have heard of offers going out they could be reserve places being called up for the courses beginning July 10. I haven't heard of anyone dropping out at this stage however.

Congratulations! So you got a verbal offer? When do you start?

I haven't heard anything yet, anxiety definitely ramping up a little but hopefully hear something soon if others are getting calls!

I'm in! Received a verbal offer today after missing a call on Friday. I'm in an en-route course starting 23rd October in Melbourne. They confirmed I'll be placed in Melbourne Center if/when I get through the training. Good luck to all those still waiting, I hope you get a good news call soon!

Just curious, did you request for Brisbane or didn't specify?

I also got a call today, starting 23rd October in Melbourne for Melbourne Centre.
