    CTI-LUVR where's your proof that CTI grads "could get through the process the fastest"? A previous poster mentioned it should be Veterans first......I agree 100%.

    Declining Location Placement Question

    I have heard these days that the FAA is like the military - you go where we need you. If you don't like it then too bad. That said I think if you are offered a position with a less than desirable location and you turn it down you probably won't get another chance given there are literally...

    Air Force ATC Help

    Recruiters are very much like the FAA - they could care less about your desires and focus much on their own goals. If you want ATC then stick with your plans and don't sign any thing unless you get ATC in writing.

    2016-2025 FAA Controller Workforce Plan

    No mention of the CTI program in the latest FAA CWP. Sorry to see they don't value education any more. Oh well, this old saying seems appropriate: "you reap what you sow". FAA_Workforce_Plan_2016-2025

    This Day Has Been a Long Time Coming

    atcadvocate makes valid points about the FAA wanting employees who are compliant and don't complain. I have been watching this and have been involved in ATC since Unfriendly skies - The air traffic controllers' sick-out, 1969; I still remember PATCO president Robert Poli fighting for employee...

    OTS Dream Facilities...

    Over the years I have seen many go to a high traffic facility and wash out, yes some made it but many failed. For me the best facility is a low level one where you can get CPC in and spend 3-5 years gaining rated experience. Don't forget the one year probation period that they can let you go...

    The Final Countdown!!!

    Did I miss something in Job Announcement: FAA-AMC-14-ALLSRCE-33537? The Security Clearance is now Public Trust - Background Investigation (I think it used to be Secret Clearance for ARTCC & Tracon positions and Public Trust for Tower). Also no where in the announcement is it listed that you...

    How Backlogged is the Academy

    The interesting part of this whole public bid is that many will apply thinking they are going to get hired and start work within a short period of time; they have no concept of the process and don't care probably just as long as they make the top end of the pay scale. Also they will totally...

    Hot of the Press.... To the CTI Schools

    Yes in the past announcements and should be for this one a combination works. One year of college = 9 months, so completing a Bachelor's degree (4 yrs college X 9 months = 36 months) is the same as having the required 3 years. If you have a 2-year degree that is the same as 18 months. The...

    Unfair Move for CTI Students

    here's a news flash ... it is an entry-level job that they train you for. Given priority because why? Because you have never felt the joy of losing. Get over yourself.

    I Saw Some Kind of Flow Chart Here a While Ago Explaining How to Apply for ATC Jobs.

    You cannot sign up to take the AT-SAT; first you apply to the announcement on USAJobs.gov (Series 2152) then if the computer deems you have what it takes (under age 31, 3 years work and/or college, pass the Biographical Questionnaire), then and only then will you be offered the opportunity to...
