The Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industry comprise one of the largest and fastest growing sectors in the world. Globally, the sector is worth over $7.6 trillion and, in Africa, it is playing a major role in boosting employment and economic growth on the continent. A career in this industry, therefore, promises both diversity and growth.




At Alt. Academy’s Travel, Tourism and Hospitality faculty, we see our role as building and supporting the sector by providing talented, skilled and enthusiastic individuals who want to thrive in an ever-expanding industry. Whether learners want to work on ships, aircraft, in the hotel industry, become a travel agent or follow any other related career, our courses are designed to enhance skills and knowledge in preparation for a successful future. We offer a registered NQF Level 5 qualification that focuses on the management and administrative aspects of tourism, including management of tourist attractions, travel arrangements, call/contact centres, foreign currency and accommodation. In addition, we have also introduced a Tourist Guiding, NQF Level 4 Course, which does not require a Grade 12/Matric pass.

Frequently asked questions
What are the requirements for becoming a Cabin Crew member?
You need to be 18 years of age at the time of writing the SACAA Cabin Crew member licensing exam hence you may commence with training 6 weeks prior to your 18th birthday.
You need to be in possession of a class 2 medical certificate.
Do you need a matric / NQF Level 4 for the Cabin Crew member course?
Although a matric / NQF Level 4 is not a legislated requirement, most airlines require this as a minimum requirement when recruiting crew members.
How do you get the medical certificate required for the Cabin Crew licensing programme?
The first step is to go for a front view chest X-ray. This is to check for TB and can be done at any radiologist or clinic where they have an X-ray facility.
Step 2 would be to make an appointment with an Aviation Medical Examiner. The X-ray must be taken with you to the medical examiner as it forms part of the medical certification process. A list of medical examiners will be found on the SACAA’s website i.e. www.caa.co.za
