lolol my CTI school was actually in the BEAUTIFUL Roswell, NM. It is a super good place to train...really laid back...I would totally take it. Not gladly mind youIve been saying this since they announced the OTS. There are even a percentage of people on here probably who would think twice about moving to Roswell or Bangor or Bismark. So for these people who applied because their friend told them to, no way in hell do they want to be an ATC enough to move there for 2 years minimum while they check out and try to transfer
I've always heard $140 per test. Heard it again last week. And if this process gets people to facilities they will not be the "best" candidates for the job and it will NOT be because of the Bio QTraditionally-
20% fail the ATSAT (Roughly 60% score WQ) so we are down to roughly 1800 out of the 2200 who just pass (roughly 1100 score WQ)
If we take just the 1100 WQ and send them to the academy, roughly 800 will pass the academy (using recent pass/fail rates)
Out of the 800 who pass the academy, roughly 600 will certify at their assigned facility (in line with the posted projections)
Rough estimates on the costs (not including OJT pay)
Academy (say all terminal)- 22M
Total- Around $23M just to get the people picked up off this bid to the field
Hopefully, this BQ serves its purpose and brings in the best candidates for the job...
Yup. I get to sit at a TRACON every day and help everyone else realize their dream. All I needed to do was switch damn seats. It was easy to stay motivated back when I knew my chance was coming. Needless to say, it is going to be time to go soon for me, its going to be like a slap in the face every day walking into this building now.Seconded CW - at a center every day. Sucks.
Maybe take a look at http://www.stuckmic.com/faa-atc-february-open-announcement-bid/25568-if-you-passed-biographical-assessment-post-here-7.html LOTS of people that passed the BQ have scored WQ.Seems like most people who passed got previous Q scores. All the people I know who have taken the AT-SAT have at least.
