Assessment and Selection

This is completed in two phases;
Phase 1 consists of an online assessment conducted using AON (€60 fee applies). This cost in non-refundable whatever the outcome of online assessment may be.
Phase 2 is a comprehensive psychological assessment, which forms part of the overall Simulator assessment / interview.
During Phase 1, captains are required to complete a total of 1 task.
