SHOCK!! Nice SEADI

I last had a check test back in 2007 and only got a 4, which I wasn't that happy with but never mind.

So, was due to have a check test in June/July this year. I contacted the DSA to let them know that I had an operation imminent and would be out of action for the whole of July, thinking that they may move it sooner.

Couple of days later, had a call from the local SE. We had a very nice chat and I explained what was happening. He said that he'd put my check test back and contact me around October/November time which would give me enough time to recover fully and get back in to the swing of things.

Must say I was very impressed and it took quite a bit of pressure off for a few months.

Hi Carl,

You are in my area; this must be the same SE I've also heard only nice things about.  Good luck when it comes around.

If it's the same one I had a couple of years back, he's a really nice guy.

Mind you, I heard such horrible things about Mr Quinn but I found him very pleasant. Shame he retired sad

Suppose it's horses for courses.

Re: SHOCK!! Nice SEADI

A few years back I suffered from a heart attack, I'd been back in work nearly twelve months when my invitation for CT came. I just could face it at the time. I sent a letter by first class mail explaining that I wish not to do it at this time, but would do it if I must. I followed this up with a phone call to SE(ADI) who was going to do the CT. He was fine about it and told me not to worry about it. I did the CT 6 months later with no problems and retained my grade.

To be honest with you I've never had any problems with any of DSA staff. My first SE(ADI was Trevor Wedge and I can't say anything bad about him. He gave me a honest debrief and help and advise on how to improve my grade. I know a lot of people didn't like him but I think to be honest it's yopur mind set thats the problem.

You get a lot of ADIs slagging of DEs SE(ADI) etc on these forums, just talk to them, work with them, we're all on the same side - road safety.

Right wheres my tin hat!!
