Why Study Aviation?

The Certificate III in Aviation (Cabin Crew) was developed for students (male and female) wishing to enter the aviation industry as cabin crew (Flight Attendants). This course provides the skills and knowledge to assist students to prepare for a career in the sky (Cabin Crew) or on the ground (Ground Service Agent). In addition students develop self-confidence, personal presentation skills, and a wide range of other important capabilities that can be used in many customer service or safety related careers.

Course Description:

The course is composed of academic and practical skills associated with Flight Attendant duties. The course is delivered over two years and represents nationally recognised training and contributes 2 units towards the NSW HSC. The Aviation course is delivered four hours per week in Year 11 and three hours per week in Year 12 at the ATS facilities in Nowra and the Dapto Ribbonwood Centre in Dapto. Practical training is conducted at the Illawarra Regional Airport, the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) and our Aircraft Cabin Simulator in Nowra.
