Wow thatís incredible, how did you get everything done in time? I had to update first aid, do a swim check, medical and reference checks and it too me a couple of weeks to get this done. You must have been speedy.

I attended a BNE assessment day on 22 June. They said we would get 4 weeks notice for ground school.

I attended on the 22nd as well and they said a ground school was coming up "soon"... I have a friend who's sister just started ground school in BNE on 27 June- perhaps they are getting through this group first?! I also got my references, medical & swim done within a week of attending AD.

Ground School Guest Service Training
 
Hi there - newbie here. I have been accepted into Ground School for Virgin Airlines but it won't start until August. Can someone give me a heads up of what type of training I will be learning? I am dyslexic, however that doesn't affect anything that I do and VA were great in accepting me. Being dyslexic means it can take me a little longer to grasp info so I would really like some insight into what I need to learn and how difficult the exams will be. Thank you for anyone who can help.

Sorry I don't have their number. I hope someone can help you out asap.

It doesn't look like they have a contact number and the best port of call is [email protected] if you haven't tried this already!

I haven't trained with VA but I have trained with 2 other airlines. You will do a lot of theory and pracs. Not only are you constantly studying and note taking, I found writing out questions and answers on cards. Like file cards or large size palm cards really helped. I also made these for my briefings once on line. Manuals will probably be on iPads. The pracs are also practising and memorising. Example; emergency drills. Basically you won't have much of a social life for 6 weeks during ground school as you have to do exams regularly and prep for them. Good luck :)

May I ask, how long did it take from your assessment day to receive a ground school start date? I'm on hold in Brisbane. :)

for me it was about a week! Iím Sydney based and did mine june 23rd I think it was :)

Thank you for your reply. I applied for Guest Services Agent not Cabin crew and we were told that it is 2 weeks of ground training. If anyone has done the GSA training I would appreciate any feedback. I have emailed Virgin but got an automated reply which didn't help my question. Thank you.

May Assessment Day 2022 - Brisbane. Has anyone heard from VA Recruitment for a ground school date? My application page still says 'medical check'. I have completed everything post AD. So hopefully this means I'm waiting for Ground School. Has anyone been phoned or received an email for upcoming Ground Schools in Brisbane? Thanks :)

Have you received a ground school date? when was you assessment day? Just trying to work out timeline for myself. I had my AD in May 2022. Waiting.... waiting, lol :)

Nothing yet, plus my application is still sitting under "medical check"... We're both in the same boat! My AD was June 23. 😥 Please let me know if you hear anything though :)

Congratulations! I haven't heard anything yet. Was your application still on medical check prior to your offer?

tsym98 17th Aug 2022 07:00

Thank you! Yes, it was still sitting under medical check this morning. However, I just signed in and it's changed over now. I hope you hear soon!
