Hi Everyone,

Just submitted my application today and it shows that the application is under review, on my Take Charge account.

Is there someone here who just submitted an application online recently? How’s your timeline?

Thanks! 😊🙏

UPDATE:

I received an email today regarding the online exam. Took it today and when the time ran out it showed on my screen that I have completed the task. Upon clicking the button the screen disappeared. Didn’t show any results. I just checked the status of my application and it says Status: Assessment. I think I passed? Based on what all of you guys who passed, experienced. 🙏😊

I just wish I get invited into the in-person test. 🤞

Congratulations on passing the online test!

A response from Joanne a couple days ago regarding training stated that recruitment is suspended until further notice and there's no timelines for resumption yet. So you may be waiting a while for that invite.

My application expires in August and plan on reapplying for the YEG region.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to respond! I appreciate it! 🙏

You might get an update on your application soon. You still have until August. 🤞🙂 It is sad that, that might happen to a lot of people due to the pandemic. I just need to move on with my life for now and just put it at the back of my head, until an update comes. IF it comes.

I feel that NavCanada is going to need a lot of new controllers once everything goes back to normal. They temporarily stopped hiring all the possible employees so they are going to need to do double time when able. That is the bright side!! 😀

I dont want to rain on your parade, so pardon me if it sounds like it... but nav canada has been training at capacity for the last little while so it will be difficult to train any more controllers than they already do. There are a bunch across the country who just started their generic training but their timeline to work in OJT is now severely delayed and this may have a cascading effect across training as a whole (delay in their anticipated qualification, therefore delay of next course start, therefore delay of testing, etc...) A course is loaded based on the anticipated operational requirement AND the capacity to train in the OJT environment. Unfortunately, it is difficult for a specialty to have trainees at all times because of how tiring training is for everyone so there is a balance to be struck as well just to give everyone a breather.

Good luck though. All of this will restart eventually, slowly but surely.

Thanks! Things will get better soon!

Yeah, you’re right! I was just thinking that they might need to ramp up their recruitment because WHEN the dust finally settles down and air traffic is back to normal or even close to normal they’re going to have the exact same problem about staffing maybe worse. People will be travelling again, old employees will still retire and that gap that they’ve been trying to fill will be even bigger just because they didn’t take advantage of this lull to chase or even atleast come close to that ideal staffing level that they’ve been aiming for decades.

On the other hand, you might be right. Because after all this the airline industry which NAV relies on might have a hard time bouncing back. In that scenario, they might not need more controllers yet or maybe even lay off some controllers but I doubt it because that will be a dumb decision as it is extremely hard to find and train new controllers.

Just my 2 cents! Hopefully we all get updates soon! 😊👍

Nope, and likely won't for a while. The world is still in frenzy and it needs to start coming back to reality before air travel increases (which is needed to increase NavCan revenue and staffing needs). Last update was a few months ago when they told me my eligible for offer was extended to 2 years from the original 18, maybe that means they anticipate a 6 month delay? but can't really read into it too much. I suspect if I get an offer, it will be close to the expiry of my application.

I hope you get your course offer soon! 🤞 I saw a post on Reddit that they’re trying to resume training this 29th of July in Edmonton. Anybody knows how acurate that is? If that is true, then for sure everything else on the Recruitment side will follow.

That's really helpful to know, thanks for the update. If you're part of that generic course best of luck with the rest of your course!
