Our FAST test measures your ability to manage a dynamic environment. The assessment is generally used as a precursor to an assessment centre or acceptance onto a training programme. The test requires you to deal with multiple information sources simultaneously replicating the demanding work environment experienced by pilots.

The practice version gives you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with how the assessment works and to have a number of practice attempts to improve your performance level helping you to perform to the best of your ability in your actual assessments.

What is included?

You will receive fifteen attempts at the FAST Practice Test. The test has no set time limit but each attempt will take you around fifteen minutes to complete. After purchasing you will have 3 months to complete all fifteen attempts of your practice test.

You will receive a report detailing how you have done on the test upon completion of each attempt.

This is a dexterity test and is designed to measure your physical and mental skills and provide an environment to practice and refine your performance, therefore each test can be repeated up to 14 times within the 3 month access period.

Advice from our Psychologists

FAST is a complex tool that replicates the intense and demanding work environment experienced by pilots by requiring you to deal with multiple information sources simultaneously. Our practice test will help you to familiarise yourself with what to expect but also the 15 attempts allow you to really practice and perform to the best of your ability on the day of the assessment.
