Theyíre outsourcing to Airways International to run more courses simultaneously. Slightly bummed that I will miss out on life and connections at the academy in Melb but oh well thatís life. The NZ bunch look like they have a good track record training NZ and UAE ATCs so Iím not too worried at this stage.

Congratulations on getting through. How much notice did you get of the course being in NZ? Whatís the accommodation situation? I assume you stay over there for the length of the course?

I was given 3 months notice until the start of training. The actual move to CHC wonít happen until 2-3 months into training and its going to be split between chc and at local base. Flying back and forth a few times. 20weeks total in chc. Besides that I wasnít given specifics. Accommodation is self arranged but there will be an allowance.

If they do run another course through Christchurch next time I think it could be different depending on how our intake goes. It does seem like we are the guinea pigs haha

Only catch is that training will be in Christchurch but will be shorter.
Iím told there are 6 in my group. Maybe its unlikely but I wonder if anyone is from here?

Can't even train their own controllers now!

An initial cohort of six Airservices Australia trainees will be sent to Christchurch following 10 weeks of online training with Airwaysí AKO virtual academy. This represents the beginning of a new contract between the two ATC organisations, with further cohorts expected to be sent in future. ......

Hi all,
Can anyone tell about the conversion course for the experience Air Traffic controllers. What is the success rate during the training and success rate for the final rating endorsement.

Thanks in advance

Looks like AsA are hiring Simulator Support Officers. Does anyone know if itís possible to move laterally from SSO into ATC?
Iíve heard rumours that there is a pathway for it.

There is no formal pathway to it internally. You'll still have to pass the tests and interviews like the general public. The only advantage you might get is the admin side of it because of having an ASIC and company profile, and being somewhat familiar with the role.

A possible disadvantage is a conflict of interest because you'd have done or seen ATC sim exams as an SSO.
