Co-worker references should be fine if you can't come up with the minimum number of personal references. Employment references are included in the work history section.

It depends largely on which region you are in. I am in west region and historically our testing has been done once a year in November.

Absolutely - one in my class was over 50. We also have a few active members over 40 in my unit.

RM , regular member
It's not if you win or lose, but how you place the blame.

Yes, PATI for auxiliary is the same as the one for the Certificate of Results. Additionally if you have your Certificate of Results you do not have to do the PATI, just the psych questionnaire.

Good luck!


do you know if you pass PATI with Auxiliary would you be able to use that result with ATS to obtain your Certificate of Results or if you fail PATI with Auxiliary would you have to wait certain period before you take it with ATS?

Thanks

Application form has adobe button which can be used to add space for additional employment/company. Using this button maximum of 5 companies can be added. I need space for 2 more. Has anyone encountered this and how did you fill the form in that case?

Thanks
