Course Entry Requirements

What Do I Need To Be Able To Participate In This Course?

These requirements are dependant on the course you wish to undertake. Pleae see entry requirements under the variety of courses we have on offer.

Which School Is Best For Me?

As many individuals aspire to be cabin crew members it is advisable to attend an ATO who assists individuals with interviewing skills and compilation of CV’s, photographs for their CV’s and cover letters.  This will assist the applicant in being better prepared for the interviewing process as many of these learners will be attending their first ever interview.

Do not pay for information sessions on cabin crew member training as the syllabus is available of the South African Civil Aviation Authority’s website or you can attend free information sessions with some ATO’s. It is also a good idea to get this information through blogs, Facebook pages or making contact with learners who have attended the training.

There are many Aviation Training Organisations (ATO’s) in South Africa and you are advised to carefully select the one you choose.  Check the credentials of the company you chose to do your training with.

Aviation Training Organisations and schools can NOT guarantee employment.  Airline operators advertise, interview and employ their own cabin crew, so be cautious of a crew training school that “guarantees employment”.
