This course will suit you if you wish to gain an insight in to the exciting world of Aviation. For example how the industry works, how an airport operates and why the aviation industry is an important contributor to the UK economy. This course has a broad spectrum covering the wider context of Aviation as a whole and is designed for students wishing to pursue a career in Aviation in general, in roles such as Passenger Service Agents, Transport Security Advisors, Airport Managers or even HMRC Customs & Excise. This course is not specifically designed for air cabin crew. Please note, students wishing to pursue a career as Cabin Crew need to look at Air Cabin Crew Level 2.
Aviation continues to be a fast growing industry with new and expanding airports developing worldwide. Ground staff and cabin crew play a very important role in the delivery of the customer experience from the initial check-in to disembarkation of the aircraft, in terms of customer service, safety, security and the comfort of passengers and crew. This course is designed to prepare you for a career in aviation.
Within the aviation academy we have exceptional facilities, including an aircraft cabin and check-in facilities that are realistic to the industry for practical work.
