Getting Started

What kind of training can I expect from The Professional Flight Attendant Academy?

You can expect nothing but the best preparation and training possible from us! Getting selected for an interview is hard enough, and when flight attendant training fail rates can reach up to 50%, trainees could use all the extra help they can get. Our purpose is to prepare you in advance, help you get selected, get the invite to classroom training, and start well prepared so you’ll be able to breeze through the airline’s training. This doesn’t mean by doing well with us, you’ve got it made! You will still have to study, but you will be going in prepared with confidence and lots of knowledge, which will make it easier for you to get through training and graduate. This is your future career, and we’re here to help you achieve your dream job!

Your flight attendant preparatory school lasts 3 days, but I see the others are longer. Why is your course shorter?

Your time is valuable, and we know this. That’s why when you come to our classroom, we teach you the most important parts of training, in person, and do it over a weekend (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday) so there’s no need for you to take vacation time or quit your job to learn with us.

Other schools spend a lot of time going over topics that are nice to know, but not helpful, like the history of the flight attendant, and spending a day teaching airport codes. Our course is designed so you can learn airport codes on your own time, at your own pace, and it comes with supporting printable flash cards you can use and practice at home!

We spent the last few years developing and refining the online course content of our training program so you can learn everything at your own pace, and watch it as many times as it takes for you to feel confident with your knowledge level. To compliment the online training courses, our online assessments give you feedback after you answer each question, so if you make a mistake, you’ll know you either got it right or wrong. Plus, you can take our tests over and over again until you’re confident you know the material. Our grading is set to 90% on all tests, the same standards as the airlines, so you’ll know you really understand the material when you see your scores! 

What makes your training different?

We know how important becoming a flight attendant is to you, and we want to help you as much as possible. We also don’t want to waste your time in a classroom during the week when you may be working or may have other obligations. The online courses teach you what you need to know. Our exams are designed to not just test you, but reinforce what you learned to make it memorable for when you’re in an airline training classroom. Our online training programs are all-device friendly. You can take our online training on your phone, on a tablet, or on a computer. We planned all this with your convenience in mind!

Do you wonder about the quality of training you going to receive? Have a look at our About section and see for yourself the experience level Donald Wecklein, our course developer and instructor, has. You’ll know you made the right decision coming to us!

I can't come to your location. Can the online-only training still help me?

Absolutely it can help you! While it is best for those who can attend in person so you can talk with us and practice with us, taking the online training only has been designed and developed with comprehensive content to provide you with all the information you need, as if an instructor was there in front of you. We know what you need to know, and we developed this content in our programs.

I would like to come to your location. Are there any hotel deals for non-locals or out-of-State attendees?

As we are using hotel conference rooms, the hotels we use offers extra discounts for those attending our course! They offer free airport pickup and drop-off, and will take you locally, for free, where you want to go within a 3 mile radius, which includes the Tempe Mall! No rental car needed when attending our course, saving you even more money.

If you would like to stay at a different hotel, the best rates available are through using websites like hotels.comtravelocity.compriceline.com. These are only suggestions, not endorsed by us. There are many hotels to choose from, and if you would like suggestions where to stay, contact us and we’ll help you find a nice place that’s reasonably priced. Learned from my travel experience, sometimes it can be cheaper on the hotel’s website when you book direct and in advance. Shop around and see who offers what rate, before you reserve the room.

Payment

How much do I have to pay to get started?

Our courses are very affordable, but more importantly, very professional with in-depth content, sometimes better than the training you will receive at an airline. Pricing is listed on our Shop page

You might ask or hear from others saying “is it worth it to pay for flight attendant course?” Considering many airlines experience anywhere from a 30% to 50% fail rate during training, and you’re not hired until you pass all of their training, our course helps prepare you to get to and through training, and have a wonderful career. Those that were sent home go home jobless, and they had to quit their previous job to start flight attendant training. When removed from training, they’re not eligible for unemployment because they quit their last job. Since they weren’t employees of the airline yet, there’s nothing for them to fall back on. So yes, this course will significantly help you!

Do you have any payment plans available?

We want to help you be able to change your career as easy as possible. Your options are:

  • Make a one-time, payment in full
  • Use PayPal for the purchase so you can get 0% interest for 6 months, or
  • Sign up for a credit card that offers 0% interest for 12 months or more. Plan ahead if using this option, as it takes 2 – 3 weeks for the application to be processed and credit card mailed to you.

You can apply for a credit card that has 0% interest rates for 12 or more months to make it easier for you to pay off. To help you, here is a link to such offers. Please note we do not receive any compensation for referring you to them. This information is provided for your convenience only.  https://www.creditcards.com/compare/zero-interest/ 

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes! Credit cards are the best way to pay and attend our courses. We won’t turn down cash if you prefer to pay in cash – that’s great too! While we prefer people to register in advance for the courses, we welcome drop-ins as well. We have a credit card reader available on the spot, with supplies for an additional student ready, so you can get started once you arrive. If you prefer to pay cash on the first day of class, please contact us for arrangements.

When does payment need to be made for me to begin training?

To reserve your place in class and get access to the online training courses and tests, the purchase of one of our plans needs to be made in advance. Once payment is cleared, within 24 hours you’ll receive access to the online courses, which will last for 30 or 60 days, depending on what course option you selected.

I don't have a PayPal account. How can I make my payment to enroll?

You don’t need to have a PayPal account to use PayPal for payment. PayPal allows you to use your Visa, Mastercard, or American Express card to make your payment.  When you click on the PayPal button, it brings you to their secure site for payment processing. 

How soon can I access the online courses?

You will get access to the online courses typically within 24 hours or less. To expedite online access, after you make your payment, please call or text us at 480-787-6440 so we know you just made a purchase. We need your email address so we can register you to an account and send you the link an password.
