When applying for accredited training courses with TVSA you will need to complete the following process. The course application screening appointment can take between 1.5 to 2 hours and is completed onsite at our Bacchus Marsh Campus.

Our course screening process consists of the following steps:

  • Course Information
  • Course Suitability Interview
  • Language Literacy & Numeracy Test
  • Flight Instructor Interview
  • Flight Simulator Test

Course Information

At your course screening, you will be provided with information about the course, including an overview of the structure, duration, and content, as well as the fees, start dates, delivery methods, and assessment methods.

Course Suitability Interview

To determine if this is the right course for you, we conduct a short interview with you to determine your suitability to the course, as well as assess your verbal communication skills.  This involves some short questions around your interest in aviation, as well as identifying any potential issues that may be in the way of you completing the course successfully.

Language Literacy & Numeracy Test

To determine that you have the required Language, Literacy and Numeracy skills to adequately complete the course, you will be required to undertake an online Language Literacy & Numeracy Test. Your details for this exam will be emailed to you before your screening appointment. We expect you to have completed all assigned activities before you attend your screening.

Flight Instructor Interview

Our flight instructors are experts in the industry and know what it takes to become a successful Commercial Pilot.  As part of our screening process, you will be required to meet with one of our instructors who will determine your level of suitability to the aviation industry.

Flight Simulator Test

All potential students are required to undertake a Flight Simulator test.  You need to achieve a score of at least 10 on this test.  No prior experience is necessary – the test is to determine how you respond to instruction and how you work as a team.

What to Bring

To the screening, you will need to bring a few documents for us to assess your eligibility for financial support.

  • Australian Tax File Number
  • Australian Drivers Licence or another photo ID
  • Australian Medicare Card
  • Passport or Birth Certificate
  • VCE/HSC/Year 12 Certificate or Certificate 4 or higher
    • This is referring to the diploma issued by the government. The certificate issued from your high school or training organisation is not valid.
