Additional information


"As a cabin crew for 10 years with previous experience in the academe, the Professional Training Diploma was a “perfect marriage” of two worlds that I love - aviation and training.

Plus the experience of interacting with people of various cultures and interests enables you to widen your mindset in this fast-paced and continuously evolving industry.
