“Thank you for giving us a great head start to our dream careers”
“From the first day of my class until I graduated back in 2008, I knew that being a Flight Attendant was where my feet would land. The staff and my instructor were very helpful and were always with us along the way as we learned and fulfilled our dream one step at a time. The instructors’ patience and willingness to share their experiences and knowledge with us was exceptional. Even if we didn’t know what it was like to be a Flight Attendant yet at that time, our instructor walked us through her life as a Flight Attendant and made us feel like we were with her on her journey. With this program, it helped me a lot going through all my interviews. It was never easy, but with all the lessons I have learned from the CTC FA program and a strong will to becoming a FA, I can now say that I am happily working as a Flight Attendant with Air Transat for 5 years and also as a Flight Director as of November 2016. The places you will go, the friends you will meet, the experiences you will go through and everything else in between makes this job a dream job. I never feel like I am working every time I fly. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all the CTC staff and my wonderful instructor then, Brenda, for all the support and believing in us. Thank you for giving us a great head start to our dream careers!”
