Ready to take on new heights? The journey to becoming a flight attendant isn’t an easy one. Being a graduate of any four-year course may not be enough as a requirement to become a professional flight attendant. This is because some airline companies could require you to have a college  degree such as Tourism or Hospitality Management. 

With that, it’s better if you’re well-trained and have enough knowledge on the field so you can achieve your goal of being part of the cabin crew. Plus, if you already have some fundamentals in hospitality, communication, foreign language, and other core subjects up your sleeve, it will become easier for you to apply and get the job.
