When is YVR's next in-person assessment session?

Post by whatisttv » Tue May 21, 2019 6:46 am

Hi y'all. Just trying to see if anyone knows the next in-person assessment session for Vancouver FIR. I want to know how long someone would have to wait after recently writing their online assessment.

Edit: Also, it's my understanding that you go through the selection in the FIR you applied in...but if you want a different FIR, how do you go about applying for that? Because the online test is a generic website. If you pass, how does navcan know which FIR you want? Do you just specify it when you receive an invitation to an in-person assessment? That seems impractical...

Not sure when YVR may be doing their next assessment, but it is my understanding they are currently running them in that region around twice a year. With the addition of FEAST it seems that applications are being processed a little quicker than with the old w-sim. At least that is what I am noticing with my own application, however this is my first time applying.

As for your second question, when I applied earlier this year you could select the FIR's you wanted to apply to. However, just be aware that whatever ones you choose to apply for you are responsible for travel to and from whichever FIR your application goes forward in. Hope this helps.

Hey thanks! Do you know when the last in-person assessment session was for this year? Where are you in the application process?

Jan 20something. We still have not (or at least I haven't, dunno about the others) gotten our interviews yet. We also did the old w-sim test, not FEAST.

I think it was January 23rd. I'm in the same boat. In the "Interview" stage but no word yet as of when that will be

Does showing "assessment" on your profile indicate that youve passed the online test? If so, how can you be sure of it?

Wait so Jan 20something (but Jan 23rd as mentioned by someone else) was the last w-sim assessment session for 2019?

From what I've read, "assessment" means you passed the online test and are awaiting the next stage, but they haven't gotten to you yet.

Looks like they are running sessions in October. It says no advanced prep is required. Does that mean they are using FEAST instead of w-sim?

I was just invited for sessions the week of October 15, the invite says no prep required so I'm guessing its the FEAST.

Good Luck!

Yep, it’s def in October, week of Oct 15-21. Does anyone know if the FEAST test is for FSS also, though?
I got invited to do the test, but it said not to do it if you wanted FSS only.
I want all three, but if FSS doesn’t require this intense test, I’d rather go FSS, it’s more my style.
But if FSS also requires this test, then I might as well do it, no sweat LOLOL

I would be interested in that answer too. I am under the impression that all streams do the same testing and that your results will dictate whether you get an offer for training, and for what kind. If anyone can confirm/clarify the testing and interview stages for VFR, IFR, FSS that would be much appreciated.
I am in the early stages of the process right now, submitted application and completed online test in early Sept., now sitting at 'assessment' and waiting. Although my primary interest is VFR I could also be quite happy with FSS and understanding the testing regime, and how it might impact my success, would be very helpful.
Once you make it through the session in Oct. and find this out would you post back here please? Thks.
