or what time did it start and end for everyone?
I will have to fly from a different state to attend..
Would you guys recommend to fly the day before? Or would I be able to fly to Sydney in the morning and come home at night?
It depends on the start time, I got into an AD that starts at 1pm (until 4pm) so that would suit you for a morning flight if it's available!

Paradise, cabin baggage can't exceed 10kg for any one item in any class, and passenger are responsible for stowing their own bags in overhead lockers. I wouldn't be worried about it.

They are assessing on how you lift, not what you lift.

Water competency

Hi everyone, Iím attending an AD in Sydney next week 😊

Can someone please share whatís involved in getting a water competency certificate? What type of swimming activities do you need to demonstrate? Is it difficult to pass?

Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences on this forum, and good luck to everyone on this journey!

Tbh, we donít know how they determine. I think they would probably look at your medical report holistically.


Try not to stress about it too much, itís done now! You should be proud of yourself that you have come this far!

Also she told me your AD date has no effect on GS date as they fill GS on rank markings so someone from September AD may get GS date b4 someone who did AD earlier as they scored higher, thatís why they continue to recruit as they want the best candidates for the role.

Seriously, don't be one bit worried about it, it's so easy, and that's coming from someone who was never a strong swimmer. You just have to swim up and back a 50-meter pool, any stroke of your choice, and tread water for 3 mins, which is basically like dog paddle staying still. It literally only takes 5 mins if that. You'll be fine

Thanks debbieitaly 😊 I donít consider myself a strong swimmer either, but I should be able to do those things. It was the only thing that concerned me a bit.

Hopefully the rest of the process goes smoothly for you, Iím sure it will 😊

The TA team will send you a form for the water competency assessment. You need to contact a pool in your local area and be assessed by a qualified lifeguard. You must be able to swim 50 metres in freestyle, breastroke or sidestroke unaided and tread water for 3 minutes unaided without stopping.

I'm not a good swimmer - so I got a swim coach to help me. I had 4 coaching sessions (one per week) plus I swam nearly every day for about a month at my local pool. I then got a lifeguard to assess me and sign the form.

Thanks Hound123, that's a great idea. I may invest some time too if I get past the AD

I called them last Monday as I hadn't had the Bodycare text or email. They booked me in over the phone for this Tuesday. Apparently they received 70 requests for medicals from Qantas so they were just working through them. If you haven't heard yet call Bodycare. They were very helpful.

I waited 4 weeks after doing the online test before I heard anything, I was then invited to a AD in March. Its a slow process, no news is good news.

This is reassuring! I was also nervous about this component
Also, good luck to all those with an AD this coming week!

I'm doing my medical on Tuesday. I have heard of someone who has been offered a GS for Melb base in January so they are booking people in. Once medicals are done we will hopefully hear more.

For those who are yet to do their AD I just saw on Qantas' tiktok page that there's a "behind the scenes at an AD" video which I found helpful!

I parked right across the road at the Holiday Inn, $15 for all day parking, very easy and not too expensive and you don't have to worry about parking tickets.

Hi all, first time poster, long time reader. I had my assessment centre in Sydney a few weeks ago and have done my xref, ASIC card application, swim competency and had my medical last week. Just wondering what the time it normally takes for the call? Iím super nervous! 😅😅

Thanks for the update, that is good news! Really hope you hear a date soon.
Hoping that means some more assessment days in the new year then if the hold pool starts getting smaller.

It really depends on their end, but I would say at least a few weeks after you submitted everything and completed your medical check.

This is a great tip! I've just been looking up all the parking places nearby but this is definitely the cheapest option, thanks for posting, takes away a bit of the AD stress!

If you already have your ASIC ID card you can access the Qantas staff parking right next door. Google map Pines Carpark Mascot to get you there.
You enter just before the International terminal, drive up over the overhead ramp and follow that until you see the parking area. Walk towards East and the Qantas building is on your left.
