QANTAS PRE-EMPLOYMENT HEALTH ASSESSMENT (PEHA)

QANTAS PRE-EMPLOYMENT HEALTH ASSESSMENT (PEHA)

QANTAS requires all Flight Crew applicants to undergo a Pre-employment Health Assessment (PEHA) and alcohol and drugs testing on a regular basis.

We offer QANTAS pre-employment health assessments on their own, or for only a small additional fee you can complete both your PEHA and Class 1 medical exam in the same appointment.

Our DAMEs are pilots too, so we make our medicals as convenient as possible with online bookings, onsite testing, after hours and short notice appointments, four locations around Victoria, and rural exams available.
