Tender takes the form of free training in various activities such as skydiving, gymnastics, balance, drawing, bilaterality, orientation, physical fitness, navigation, music, pilotage training in the B737 NG simulator, abseiling, communication, first aid, work in heights, ability to react in extreme situations, etc.
During the training, the candidate is evaluated by a point system by instructors and other collaborators by the D21 system. The candidates who obtain the highest number of points advance to the second stage.
Candidates who do not advance may repeat their training in low-scoring activities. It is also possible to repeat the entire admission procedure. Repetition of trainings is for a fee. The amount of reimbursement is determined depending on the results achieved in the range from the symbolic reimbursement to the amount of actual costs within the scope of the given training.
The length of the first stage is not mandatory and depends on the time possibilities of the applicant, provided that the Foundation respects that the participants have their other study, work and family responsibilities and therefore tries to meet the participants as much as possible. However, it should be noted that flexibility and time and energy management in the long term is an important part of the overall assessment.
The average duration of the first stage is not less than half a year.
In case of successful discharge of the first stage of the admission procedure, the participants proceed to the smoothly following second stage, which takes the form of an internship.
At this stage, participants continue to improve their skills with a focus on multidisciplinary synthesis. In the second stage, a number of educational courses for basic orientation in the given fields and their interconnection (languages, mathematics (not necessarily), physics, chemistry, informatics, biology, etc.) are added. During this phase, participants also choose from a range of options in what activities they would like to work as instructors in the future, and their study program develops accordingly.
The length of the second stage (internship) ranges from one year to two years.
Participants who fail during the second stage of the admission procedure may improve their skills or activities in which they receive a low grade in the form of a paid traineeship under similar conditions as in the first stage.
The Foundation is entitled to close the selection procedure at any stage.
