Next preparation at ATTC-London
The Emirates Test
The assessment at Emirates lasts 2 days in Dubai; candidates arrive on the relevant previous day. Already while checking into the hotel, documents deposited at reception (forms, instructions, screening briefing, etc.) are handed over to the candidates. The 3-part procedure consists of a capacity part (Advanced Compass Test), the screening on a B777 simulator and an assessment centre on the second day. 10 to 16 candidates take part in a test session.
After an early briefing, the candidates are split into groups of 4, of which 2 pilots per group must take the Advanced Compass test or the SimulatorScreening in the morning or afternoon. With the Compass test, some typical operational tasks from the pilots' area of work are simulated; the following is tested, amongst other things:
2-dimensional imagination (i.e. interpretation of instrument displays in relation to aircraft positions)
Multiple resilience by entering data in a virtual FMS with simultaneous monitoring of visual alarm displays
Multiple resilience by a computer-based simulation module
Retentiveness by calling up data issued previously and their input in a control field
Mathematics consisting of text tasks, rule of three, conversion tasks as well as interpretation of charts
ATPL knowledge (primarily questions with a flight operational background)
Capacity of the candidate in the working environment in a simulator screening on B777.
At the end of day 1, the decision is taken which candidates are invited to the Assessment Part on day 2.
During the Assessment Part, the candidates undergo various test phases that must be passed by the candidates as individual or group tasks. In addition to a first profile analysis with a psychological questionnaire, presenting oneself on a flip chart as well as group games and individual interviews are part of the programme. As part of the group task, decision-making competence, social behaviour and potentials for target implementation, amongst other things, are analysed; the aim is to take the correct decisions during the test phase under time pressure.
Preparation at ATTC
To prepare for the test at Emirates, our tried-and-tested 3-level concept is used:
- Software training with the very latest Advanced Compass Test modules already before the seminar.
- 3-day intensive seminar training in one of the ATTC centres.
- Post-processing with an individual training plan and optional free repetition of seminar content.
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 seminar. In addition to the in-depth instruction in the exercises of the CompassTest, the trainers also provide tried-and-tested and targeted strategies to improve the personal performance balance.
For the area of mathematics, the EK training schedule plans for the participation in specialist courses and, in addition, an online training module with exercises as well as coursework for subsequent work at home. The ATTC technical instructors for mathematics are also available for support online outside the seminar.
Group Exercises and Flip Chart
The group role-plays are performed in a variety of versions so that all possibilities and eventualities can be experienced during a role play. ATTC trainers show the best approaches appropriate to the situation; individual weaknesses are eliminated by repetition of specific aspects or by comprehensive repetition.
The "script" for the InterviewTraining (psycholog. and techn.), as in the real test, also incorporates individual insights gained over the course of the seminar in addition to profile data from the psychological questions.
The ATTC trainers and psychologists are also available online outside the seminar to provide individual help and support until the date of the test.
