Cargolux via AMC

+++ News Mar.04th: From May Cargolux with DLR-Test, updates will follow +++

The procedure at CargoLux has been performed since the spring of 2014 at the Aeronautical Medical Center AMC in Amsterdam or alternatively also in Maastricht. The former test battery at IBF, Dr. Schwan in Saarlouis has now been confined to history. The Global Pilot Selection System - GPSS for short - at AMC lasts approximately 4 -5 hours and includes the typical elements of popular aptitude tests for pilots. In addition to the capacitative contents, mathematics and English are also examined; furthermore, it also has even in the pre-test some psychological elements such as a large psychological questionnaire with more than 400 questions, planning tasks and "problem solving" (… under time pressure), as well as CRM contents - also within the context of a role-play with a psychologist. 

The new procedure for CargoLux consists of 3 parts overall, i.e. a GPSS pre-selection test at AMC, an assessment with group games and an interview, as well as simulator screening.

Training at ATTC

3-day intensive seminar or SRT® distance-learning course

The ATTC training in preparation for the test for CargoLux at AMC represents the entire scope of the tests.

The booking options consist of either 3-day Intensive Training at an ATTC location or effective Supervised Remote Training SRT® as a distance-learning course at the start.

The preparation for the Cargolux test is carried out regularly by us; the contents of the training are right up-to-date – as usual at ATTC!

To prepare for the test, our tried-and-tested 3-level concept is used: 

1.Training software even before the start of the seminar (exclusive selection of Cargolux-related CBT exercises in preparation for the GPSS processes)

2. Intensive 3-day seminar training in one of the ATTC centres

3.Follow-up with individual training plan and support up to the respective part of the examination

Improving the psychological profile

The topic of "psychological questions" forms a comparatively large part of the Cargolux recruitment procedure; accordingly, the ATTC preparation for this specific part of the test is equally extensive at AMC. As in the original process, different versions of the battery of questions are used for the training.

The analysis and optimisation of the psychological questions is performed by ATTC psychologists; there is also the option of accessing trainer resources outside of the seminar.

Increasing the performance values during the capacitive tests

The performance is increased for the capacity requirements on the basis of an individual training schedule, which is created in accordance with a detailed performance record at the start of the training. In addition to the in-depth instruction in the exercises for the current process at AMC, the trainers also provide tried-and-tested and targeted strategies to improve the personal performance balance.

Preparation for the interview and group play

On the basis of the individual biographical background, a personal interview guideline is compiled.

During the ATTC training, the presentation of the curriculum vitae up to now is optimised individually; decision maker-compliant solutions are provided for any weaknesses. The applicants also learn how it is possible with simple means of self-reflection to further improve the results achieved up to that time during the course of the test.

The preparation for the new method is carried out by us regularly with a very good pass rate; please contact us to learn more about the recruitment process for CargoLux via AMC.
