International Aviation Services
Will this profession suit you?
At first glance, working in the aviation sector looks romantic: travelling to foreign countries, meeting people from different cultural backgrounds and seeing the world. However, the job of an Aviation Service Agent is not only demanding, but also requires a good sense of responsibility.
A job in aviation means working in an international environment, where work is carried out 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Large volumes of products and hundreds and thousands of passengers are transported daily. At the airport, you work with strict safety regulations, but you are also expected to be familiar with the economic interests of the airline companies and other related companies.
As an Aviation Service Agent, you have a passion for travel, you are customer-oriented, capable of adapting to unexpected situations and you have a down-to-earth mentality. You are able to work irregular shifts.
Taking care of flight safety and safety at the airport are your priorities. Your task is to ensure that all procedures are adhered to and to take relevant action, where applicable.
What will the study be like?
International Aviation Services is a skill-based course that focuses on both theoretical and practical aspects of jobs in the aviation industry. Practical situations are thoughtfully translated into themes to which guest classes, lectures and skills training sessions are linked. This not only makes the course extremely varied and challenging, but also prepares students optimally for the job.
The full time course ends with a five months traineeship as a Passenger Service Agent or a Cabin Attendant. You will take part in various projects and learn two foreign languages.
