Flight Attendant Certificates & Degrees


• Basic Flight Attendant Certificate*                                   

  1. Advanced Flight Attendant Certificate

  2. Associate in Science Degree, Flight Attendant   


*Online Option! The Basic Flight Attendant Certificate can also be completed online, but require attendance for the first and last day of class.   

Flight Attendant Coordinator: Anyone wanting to be flight attendants may email Kathleen Reiland at kreiland@cypresscollege.edu for more information about which option would be best for them. Please know that our program is much like a business degree in that you do not need a business degree to open a business, but it helps. Commercial airlines do not require a certificate in advance of the airline’s own training.  Anyone who meets the minimum requirements can apply for a flight attendant position, and you most certainly do not need to spend thousands of dollars to apply.

The Cypress College Basic and Advanced Flight Attendant Certificates helps students prepare for the competitive interview and training requirements while providing transferable college credit at a California public college.  Everyone is encouraged to start with the Basic Flight Attendant Certificate (15 units).  Then depending upon your age, work experience, and education, you may want to begin applying to the airlines or pursue an Advanced Flight Attendant Certificate (35 units).  With the Advanced Certificate plus your GE (general education), you will qualify for a Flight Attendant Associate in Science Degree, which can be particularly useful for those students interested in pursuing flight attendant management positions. 

Current flight attendants wanting to pursue their degree may receive up to 12 units of credit for their previous training and work experience (see Credit by Examination below).
