Re: Training Course Offers

Wow thanks for that good luck on your training ! How many years did you have to wait before starting as FSS and getting on an IFR course Thanks!! I should also add to the above: I love FSS now. I was initially disappointed because it wasn’t what I was dreaming of, but I got over that super quick. I...

Re: Training Course Offers

i was streamed IFR, offered FSS and accepted

As I understand it, if you would have gotten VFR that cycle, you would've gotten it or standby

You could wait for the next cycle but there's no gaurantee for that cycle.

Re: Would you say working as an air traffic controller is a job or a career?

What is it that you mean by external? As in not yet working? I believe you are somewhat right about my priorities. I haven't yet given it my all or devoted everything, yet. Is it not normal to think about what could happen years from now? In case something happens to Navcan? Automation? Something di...

Re: Would you say working as an air traffic controller is a job or a career?

I wouldn't really say income is the factor that separates a job and a career. Moreso, what other occupations can one move in to after working as ATC? Any moves in related industries?

Re: Any updates on YYZ Training

You could be called in June for a course that starts in September?

Did you tell the interviewers that you were willing to relocate or do another course such as FSS or VFR?

Does Navcanada provide housing? How does someone go about just moving to somewhere that remote?

Would you say working as an air traffic controller is a job or a career?

What other related jobs can one do after working as a FSS or an air traffic controller? Any ex-controllers working in related fields or moved around Navcanada?

Re: YYZ Interviews and Upcoming Courses

I can't believe no one's been called. It's almost September! My cousin got called for the September IFR course yesterday. Stings extra hard for me since I've been in the candidate pool since February whereas he only joined the pool a few weeks ago. Ah well, the waiting game continues. Darn Well it'...

Re: YYZ Courses in 2017

Re: Application Process Samples

The employee referral program seems really unfair to me Yes, it does seem very unfair to those of us off the street. However, they have to do something to increase the suitability of applicants, since the ATC courses have a sub-50% success rate. Since no one in the world has obviously found a consi...
