In the context of the in-flight industry, this programme will enable the learner to contribute positively towards a professional and safety-conscious service while enhancing overall passenger satisfaction.

This multi-skilling ability, integrated with the regulatory functional skills required to be a cabin crew member and finer etiquette skills will position the learner favourably in a very competitive market.

In addition, the qualifying learner will be positioned to further his/her learning practice and career within the aviation industry.

Expansion into other sub-sectors of tourism is also possible.
