YVR in person assessment (Jan 2020)

Post by Delta22 » Tue Jan 07, 2020 12:40 am

Hey all. I applied to the YVR FIR back in October, and I'm curious if anyone has any idea when the in person assessment for Vancouver is, and when we could possibly hear from NAV Canada if we're successful?

As a side note: does NAV send out all invites within a short span (1-2 days) or spread out (1 week plus)?

Thanks and good luck to those who also applied!

If you've just applied this past Oct, expect it to take a while.

I've noticed some other FIRs have been sending out invites, has anyone received an invite for the YVR assessments?

The last in-person assessment they ran was in October, followed by a round of 2-day assessments in December.

When I had called the Navcanada recruitment number last April, the person I spoke with had said they typically do only one or two rounds of assessments a year in this region. Impossible to say for sure, but I would guess it will be at least another 3 to 4 months before they would be running another round of in-person assessments.

That's odd. cause the website says "Our next courses begin in Fall 2020. Apply by January 31, 2020 to begin testing in February 2020." I might have to call in and see what they say.

Just called and spoke with Joanne at the national recruitment center. She said there's no assessment sessions in Feb, and she didn't say when the next one was :/

Oh, well that is disappointing! I was expecting it to run the same time as others since all of them but one had the same timeline.
Thanks for the update though.

yeah its kind of odd that they still say on the website that testing begins next month. I know YEG and YYZ have their assessment dates, have any other regions heard about theirs?

So I emailed NavCanada - I was told invites for YVR will likely go out at the end of the month but no specifics.
