No its actually more usual than you would think! A talent pool represents those candidates who would have progressed on to training, if dates for training were available. When training dates have not been set, for example smaller airlines may wait until a busier period i.e. summer before scheduling training dates, then candidates wait in the pool until a date becomes available. The training days may not have been secured or training may be suspended for many reasons; availability of Trainers, late delivery of planes, booking simulation facilities so don’t worry, you will just need to wait until a training course becomes available. But remember you can of course apply to other airlines in the meantime or choose to for your training date call.
