Flight Attendants

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Flight attendants need to have at least a high school education. A broad education is important to allow flight attendants to cope with the variety of situations they will encounter on the job. Beginning foreign language studies in high school will open up the possibility of working on international flights later. Other useful classes include health, psychology, speech, business, sociology, geography, and first aid and emergency medical techniques.
