Berjumpa lagi di entry seterusnya. Part 2 ATC intake. Congrats to those who have passed the first exam. "RM0.00:SPA: Anda dijemput utk menghadiri temu duga Pegawai Kawalan Traffik Udara Gred A41" In this interview, it has 3 sessions; 1. Color blind test, 2. Reading and understanding a text given and 3. Group discussion. For the 2nd and 3rd session, the entire participant will be assessed by the DCA officers.
The participant is divided into a small group. For my group, the interviewer is the current Air Traffic Controller at the KLIA. These officers are an excellent listener; commands a good English, very firm and they are hard to be tickle. ;)
Not much to say in the color blind test. Failed the test, you will be called for the second test. Failed the second test, participant are requested to leave the area. In the second session, participant is required to read the text between ATC and pilot. The text given is highlighted in different color. One needs to read the lines clearly with good clarity and good English pronunciations. Please read the next line clearly, Pilot: “Mayday, mayday, mayday. Foxtrox Kennedy Seven Eight Two Request Emergency Landing Due Bird Strike”. ATC: “Kuala Sentral Tower, Please Route Foxtrox Kennedy Seven Eight Two To Subang Airport” ini dialog aku reka. ;).
Move to the next session, participant is given 2-5 minutes to understand the given paragraph. Read it carefully and understand the passage. Question will be given verbally and the panel would like us to answer it by reading the passage back. Don’t try to elaborate/give opinion for an answer.
On the third session, in the group of 4 to 5 participant, we have to select our own discussion topic. Topics available during my session; 1. What is the differences between normal commercial airlines and Low-Cost commercial airlines? 2. What is the method to maintain a healthy lifestyle? Nie jer yg aku ingat. On this session, the interviewer request our group to select a group leader and why. We are given 10 minutes, pen marker and kertas paper size A1 to jot down our group discussion. Buat macam peta minda. Then we have to present what we have written in that piece of paper. We have to clearly elaborate the points and facts throughout our presentation. After we have presented our own points, the panel will require us to interact with our group member. As I said previously, these ATCO is an excellent listener; they easily detect our mistake during our presentation. They will confront us back based on what we have said. At this moment, please be composed and think of a good solution instead of against the wrong facts you gave. Memang pressure kerana if 1 group member kantoi, yang lain TAK boleh tengok jer. Try to defend this group member. Baru dapat tunjuk kiter nie team player. Kalau tengok jer member kena hentam, parah.
Apa yang dikata hendaklah berfakta, bukan merapu. Sekiranya salah cakap, please re-phase and correct your answer. But, the key thing is, you have to b very compose in delivering your thoughts and opinions. Active and show your charisma. Sebenarnya, mase pilih tajuk, make sure you choose the best title yg byk isi. Jangan merapu. haha.. cakap mcm aku bagus jer. ;p
