Just go to a regional. Pays much better than 737 here with better schedules and benefits.
I don't mind international, just the schedules of 47 are all over the place.

any advice/help in that matter ?
You can certainly ask. Another poster had been offered 767and asked about an earlier class date. They were offered the 737 with an earlier date.

All they can do is say no. It is only a 2 year seat lock. That time will go by quick.

Shortly before your start date, one or two weeks out, you will get access to AtlasU for your CPATs. Please do them before Indoc, or be really close to having them all done. You will likely be told by HR that you don't have to start them before arriving in MIA, but to me that is legal speak for, We aren't paying you yet so we can't make you do work.

You will get your IPad with access to the FCOMs, FOM, training syllabus, panels, IAIs, QRH, Flows, etc on Day One.

You are going to want until you get Atlas materials, so that you learn Atlas specific procedures, call outs, etc. Here are some generic materials you might consider:

121 Regulations
North Atlantic Tracks
Boeing Flight Crew Training Manual

Thanks, nope no ATPs or other British aircraft, just Canadian. I have thought about it a lot, but what kind of things do you mean? I was mostly inquiring about what was said about Atlas's training. I am looking forward to the change, and also ending up at an American company I can retire with.

Systems are not Company specific.
Use anything you can find online, YouTube etc etc etc.
Just keep in mind that electrical system is somewhat different between freighter and pax versions.
B747 Systems

Systems are not company specific, but sweater guy talks about a different variant than what you study in training, so need to filter some of that information.
Say "EECs go to ALTN mode when reversers are activated" in your oral, and the DE will know you watched the sweater guy.
