MCC Courses, Which Ones have Job connections!

Hi all,

Have heard here and there that certain MCC courses can lead to job interviews if you make a decent impression. Which ones would these be then eh? (apart from the Ryan Air related scammers of course!)
Can anyone here testify as to having got a job interview as the result of their MCC course?

Also, in choosing an MCC course, what other things should I look out for, ie how important is the type of sim? Would doing it on say a king air sim disadvantage you if you had a sim check on a 737 for example?

As always, cheers for any replies.

I did MCC at TFC, but nothing there.

Heard that C4U and FSB doe MCC and during MCC you are watched by recruiters. Don;t know if it's true tho, but I do know that some go on to TQ and get hired in Germany

Generally speaking when it comes to be hired in germany they ask you to be fluent in german but who knows maybe english is enough.

Bye

CTC's ATP scheme puts you into a hold pool for a job but, as far as Im aware, it is currently closed for aplications at the moment. Have a look at www.ctcwings.co.uk and the various CTC threads on here regarding propspects of employment afterwards (pretty damn high!)

Only my opinion, but i thought that when completing the MCC, it could go someway to helping in getting that elusive first position. I did mine at EFT on the L1011. It was great, and i got a very good report, but the reality is it's just a tick in the box that you need to have. With hindsight i would have done the cheapest i could find. I would say the only benefit was i got some jet sim handling time.
I kept in touch with 12 guys who i met at various points during my training. We were all modular, and all second career guys. All of us took very different paths. All of us now fly jets, so i firmly believe if you keep motivated you will get there.

Last year Flight Safety had links with Loganair for the MCC on the Saab 340 at Farnborough. Not sure if the same scheme is still running.
