    New Guy Lost in the Sauce

    Good Morning Ladies and Gents!

    So the title of this should say it all, I'm getting out of the Marine Corps here in a month and want to move into Air Traffic Control ASAP so I've been trying to find answers but I'm pretty lost and have tried to do research by myself but cant seem to find a solid answer so I had a few questions I was hoping people on here could answer for me.

    1. Where do I see the "bids" to go to the FAA academy when they come out and apply? I've heard its on USAJOBS but if it is I don't exactly know what I'm looking for. When I type in Air Traffic Controller it shows for what I'm assuming is already qualified controllers in different airports.
    2. Does anyone know when the next bid will come out this year?
    3. Is there any other tips you vets could give me that would help through the process of applying?

    Thank you guys again for your help!

    Are you a controller in the Marines or just a Marine in a different field?

    1. Search "2152" on the USAjobs site and filter it out for "Open to the Public" announcements. When the bid comes out it will be titled "Air Traffic Control Specialist Trainee" or something along those lines.

    2. The ATC Union Vice Pres posted on FB that the next off the street hiring bid will open sometime in June.

    3. Visit the link I posted below, read through the requirements, make sure you meet those requirements/CAN meet the requirements by the time the bid opens, get all your paperwork/records/etc ready.

    also, try to request your full medical records from your base hospital you may need to refer to it in the future during the hiring process or provide the whole thing to the flight doc as well. Don't mention all the crayons you've ate during your time in the USMC when you fill out your medical history.
