Can someone help with these questions

years ago, close to 10 I interviewed with MAM, got the job, but subsequently didnt get through the Emergency Procedures training. You could say I cracked under pressure on the final day and forgot one word in my drill for 767.

Are you "blacklisted" and are you ever able to apply again?

I know its the school of tough love so I am not really hopeful, but nearly 10 years later I would love to fly as much as I did back then.

I am sure you wouldn't be black listed but it sounds a strange airline for failing you for getting a word wrong.

Learning drills by rote is very old fashioned. Most airlines want to just be sure you know what to actually do in an emergency, not that you can remember a list of words nowadays!!

Anyway, good luck.

There is no Blacklist for people who don't pass an SEP course!

Try again, You will be fine!

MAM operates mainly for Qantas, as Qantas SEP procedures use several "memory recall" drills they are actually required to be word perfect.

As I understand it this is the regulator's requirement, not the airline's.

It's the same for pilots' memory recall items- you MUST know them word for word.

I do know this was recently found to be lacking in the Manila decompression which meant the procedures were again changed and cabin crew MUST know that particular drill word for word.

It sounds in this case if the original poster failed the SEP course, that they would have failed the drill on several tries, not just the one. You get a re-sit on anything you don't pass the first time but the pass mark goes up (IIRC it starts at 85 or 90% in QF and goes up to 95% or 100% on subsequent re-sits) A fail in the resits means not passing the course.

So, not so silly after all. The worst that will happen is you can ask and they will say no. Try another airline in that case. But, it seems worth a try as it's been quite some time.

Boomerang: Thanks for your reply , yes you are correct, had to be word perfect.

I passed it throughout all the training sessions and unfortunately it was one word that I did forget to write down in the written part at the end of the drill. Practical was fine, passed that, was the written test I failed.

I will never forget my assessment, from what I learnt in that 4 weeks of Emergency Procedures training the one thing I will never forget is the trainer/teacher!! Ive even had her on flights with QF since then!!
