Haven't received one.
Wondering if it is too late to receive one now?
Felt confident I did well on the aptitude test and application.

Same- haven't gotten one. Was this your first time applying? I wish I could see the results of the aptitude test! LOL I thought I did pretty well as well.

I wouldn't necessarily be concerned if you didn't get invited to the first assessment after completing the initial application and online test. It took me close to a year to be invited to the assessment session.

Chin up! I timed out on my first application (never got an invite to the assessment), reapplied and am now sitting in the candidate pool waiting for a course offer almost 2 years since that first application. With some luck I won't time out and have to reapply to go through this whole process again :rolleyes:

Don't get discouraged and keep going for it if this is something you want!

I was there. It was pretty difficult.

I decided to skip a question on the w-sim but I forgot to skip a row on the scantron sheet :smt076
So we'll see how it goes. I doubt I did better than 60% after that colossal screw-up. Oh well!

The testing is designed to see how well you can work under pressure. I wonder why? :wink:
When I tested way back when in the UK, on one test there were so many questions to answer and definitely not enough time to answer them all. If you realize that there isn't enough time and just do your best on what you can finish, you'll do fine. No point worrying about not being able to finish and then getting what you do answer wrong. Might all be different now though.

I went through the YYZ assessment centre a few years ago and had a similar experience to what Cossack describes from his time in the UK. Some of the sets deliberately have more questions than can be answered in the given time. It does make you think under pressure and prioritize what needs to be answered, and answered correctly rather than a multitude of quick wild guesses.

Well, I passed, despite screwing up the W-Sim. Any tips for the interviews?

Hi guys, my update: no invite for the in person interview yet. Still waiting.

We just had our phone interview, I think it might be a while for the in person interview to come. Could be wrong though.

Any one else has updates?

Did you send in your documents? I don't think they set up the in person interview before they process your docs. I was in the same session and just got notified that my documents were received.

Hey folks,

I also received snail-mail confirmation of my documents, however, in my NAV CANADA profile they have not yet updated the information to reflect this.
Is this the case for anyone else who got their docs back in the mail?
