Cabin crew training takes flight
The first 30 Territorians to graduate from a new cabin crew training program will now enter the aviation sector and help ease critical workforce shortages.
The Cabin Crew Preparation Course enables Territorians to undertake a four week course to become ready to fill cabin crew positions with regional airlines, including Alliance Airlines and Airnorth.
The aviation industry has been one of the hardest hit by COVID-19 however, our regional airlines are experiencing exponential growth with the easing of restrictions and borders reopening.
The Cabin Crew Preparation Course is funded by the Northern Territory Government under the Pre-Employment Training Program.
The Pre-Employment Training Program is designed to give Territorians practical skills to help them get a job, apprenticeship or traineeship in occupations experiencing skill shortages or those that are hard to fill.
The Cabin Crew Preparation Course is designed to prepare students for each stage of the cabin crew recruitment process and includes First Aid and Responsible Service of Alcohol qualifications, which are required for all Australian Cabin Crew roles.
Students were given hands on training in handling emergencies such as evacuations, fires and first aid along with security and customer service.
Thirty Darwin-based students successfully graduated from the first and second intake of the course. They will now go on to undertake cabin crew recruitment with local airlines.
