Montreal FIR acceptance rate

Hello All Given the fact that Montreal requires all applicants to be fluently bilingual , would you say this mean if you're bilingual you chances of getting through to the Montreal FIR is significantly better than all the other FIRs ? I'm saying this to mean the bilingual requirement would reduce th...

Re: Frustrations of a Military ATC and the Big Leap

What about the possibility of ex Military ATCs working in other areas of the world such as Dubai and the rest of the middle east. I know they take experienced controllers, do they consider the experience of he military?

Re: ATC beyond NAV Canada

I personally know a former military controller who had a speciality specific course run just for him. Its 100% on a case by case, FIR by FIR basis. No one goes directly to OJT in any scenario. Some classroom/simulator time is always required. As the poster above me mentions alot of people seem conf...

Wrong, Nav doesn’t care about a military license, you’ll have to apply and go through the same process all over again.
This is 100% correct !

Re: ATC beyond NAV Canada

Certainly don't feel bad if you didn't make it through FEAST. Many, many don't. You can wait the 18 months (used to be 12) and then try again. As for trying in other countries, unfortunately, that won't work. They only hire their own citizens to go through the program. There is a company in the Emi...

Re: ATC beyond NAV Canada

I'm sorry that you weren't successful in the application. Would you ever be interested in becoming a railway traffic controller? Edit: Seems like there's a separate testing process for FSS. Perhaps you'd want to apply for that, get your foot in the door then apply for a transfer to ATC down the roa...

Re: FSS in person assessment invite questions

The manager of training in edmonton told me specifically that if you indicated that you wanted FSS as your first choice and you didnt pass the FEAST that you would be in consideration for FSS , but she didnt say anything about another assessment, dont know how much this helps.

Re: FSS in person assessment invite questions

Whats the date for your assessment?

Did you indicate to them that you wanted FSS as your first choice ?

I was told in the FEAST assessment that FEAST was geared towards ATC, so I believe that they are creating another type of testing thats a bit easier that the FEAST for FSS

In other words, when they send you the email to appear for an assessment how much time do you normally have. I plan on leaving the country for a bit and I wo...
