I thoroughly enjoyed this course, especially the Cabin Crew aspect of my studies. After I graduated I secured a job with Aer Lingus as a Guest Service Agent. I can honestly say I would never have gained this position had I not completed this course. By completing the Travel & Tourism course, I gain confidence in myself it helped me to figure out what I really wanted to do in life.
