Certificate III in Aviation (Cabin Crew)

National ID: AVI30116 | State ID: AZS9

 

Are you ready to let your dreams soar?

When you complete the Certificate III in Aviation (Cabin Crew) you will be recruitment-ready for an exciting career as a flight attendant or cabin crew member.

You will gain valuable experience and skills in emergency response drills, first aid, responsible service of alcohol, teamwork and customer service, and preparation for cabin duties. You will gain confidence in dealing with difficult passengers on an aircraft with crew member security training.

This course is specifically designed for those seeking an exciting career as a cabin crew member (flight attendant). This course has been developed in conjunction with commercial airlines and experienced cabin crew training managers to meet current aviation standards and will thoroughly prepare you to be successful in the airline industry.

South Metropolitan TAFE has a Boeing 737 which will be used for the majority of your practical training. The fun begins with practical exercises such as evacuating down a slide, simulated cabin fires with a smoke machine, firefighting, ditching and life raft training. You will have hands on instruction in the full-length cabin with business and economy class seating, fully operational galleys, cabin service equipment and PA system.

Graduates of this course have successfully gained employment with both regional and international airlines as cabin crew members.

Students should also be fit and healthy in order to successfully complete the airlines emergency procedure training. A prerequisite for the course is the ability to swim a minimum of 50 metres, unaided and fully clothed. Students must provide a swimming certificate in order to demonstrate they meet the prerequisite and can therefore participate in the water training exercises.
