CTI is for one of those that went to one of the colleges that offers a degree in ATC.

CTO is for those who already have the Tower Operator license.  I guess the FAA is trying to lure guys from Midwest ATCS over?

REINST is for former controllers to be reinstated (prior to age 31, so this one is a bit odd)

RMC is for retired military air traffic controllers

VRA is for veterans who were air traffic controllers, but are no longer able to do so for the military

PUBNAT is for the general public to apply  (OTS=off the street)


That's the way that I understand the hiring categories anyway

VRA is for veterans, but it doesn't necessary mean you are no longer able to be in the military.

But on the USAJOBS announcement.. it states
"WHO MAY BE CONSIDERED:    AT-CTI Graduates"
so does this mean im not allowed to apply for the position since im basically off the street?

To answer your question, yes you would not be able to apply.  You would not be able to for this application anyhow, as you have to enter in a code to even start the application process.  They only send qualified CTI graduates the code right when the application is released.

There's no public or off the street application available at this time and there probably won't be until later this year.

Wow, I might as well grab a sandwich and a beer and set up my picnic, looks like I'll be waiting for a while... 

I also applied to PUBNAT7; for those who may be interested I talked to a lady at the FAA in the second to last week of February just to try to get an update and she said I could probably expect to hear in the next 2-4 weeks if I got put on the referral list.  That would technically expire on Saturday, but I decided to give them to the end of March since it IS the government.  Based on this I guess I'll just continue to check my e-mail, move on with my life and when it comes it comes. 

I feel bad for some of you who said you've been waiting something like a year.

I would say the "estimate" you got is rather rough; it's probably going to be longer.  Also remember, once they create a referral list for your PUBNAT7 you may or may not be put on it (you can always check the status in ASAP).  If you are put on it, you may be contacted within 2-4 weeks after that, depending on where you want to go and the need in that area, etc.  Before they create the referral list, they'll have you select up to 5 states you would like to go to (unless they changed this and you now do it when you apply).

After they create the referral list, they'll e-mail you if they like your application and you'll begin setting up an appointment for the PEPC and filling out a TON of paperwork.  It takes some time, so keep your spirits up, hope isn't lost yet.

Best of luck too!  smiley

Hello all, I just came across this conversation on google and figured I'd chime in. I applied for the PUBNAT7 position back in December and on 3/19/09 my ASAP account had been updated saying that I was on the list to take the ATSAT and that I would be contacted in a few weeks. On the application I said I wanted to work in the Boston area including the Nashua and Merrimack NH  centers, any one have any ideas if any facilities in this area are / will be looking for people?

Just as an update for PUBNAT7 I was notified on Mar 19 that I've been selected to take the AT-SAT. 

Mark- are you from CLE/local area or are you heading to that area just on assignment?

I'm originally from Ohio myself... I grew up not too far from KCAK (Akron/Canton), but I was offered CLE and took it.

So I guess that makes it a bit of both.

Sorry for the bump + slightly off topic post, but do any of you know if the long period before responding to an application holds true for other professions in the FAA? I applied for an electrician job last week and this is the only discussion I could find as to how long it takes for them to respond. Thanks.

Yes I've heard that other jobs within the FAA take some time.  The FAA likes everything to move expeditiously except paperwork.  Not sure on the waiting period but you will eventually hear a response.  Best of luck!

Oh so I might see you soon in CLE then if this consolidation goes through.  You might want to live half way between YNG and CLE.
