There are many places that offer air hostess training. If you are interested in a career as an air hostess you might find it difficult to choose the best, but there are things you can check that will help you to decide among them. Look at the reputation of the school, how long it has been around, the percentage of students that actually find jobs in their chosen career after completion of the program, and the level of training offered.
One of the best ways to check the reputation of an air hostess training school is to ask for references. Contact the admissions department and ask to speak to former students. It is best if you can talk to both very recent graduates and to some that have been out of the program for a year or two. Ask these people if they would recommend the school, and what they felt were the strong and weak points of the program. Be sure to find out from each one if she is working as an air hostess, and if not, why not.
When checking the school’s overall qualifications for air hostess training, ask how long they have been in business. A new school may have an excellent program, but when trying to choose the best program it is often better to go with a school that has been in business for several years. Find out what airlines the school works with, where past students have found work, and what percentage of former students have found work as airline hostesses.
An important consideration is the level of training. Air hostess training can take as little as two months or as long as a year. Find out how much practical experience is involved. Ask if all of your time will be spent in a classroom or if part involves actual training flights. The longer programs will usually cost more, but when you leave you will be fully trained, making it potentially easier for you to find employment.
There are air hostess training schools located throughout the world. If you have a certain airline in mind, or wish to be able to fly to certain countries on a regular basis, investigate the schools in that country first. Ask the Human Resources department of one or more airlines what schools they recommend, or what schools they would suggest you avoid. This will help you focus in on the best air hostess training for your needs.
