Kind Words from TYSA Students

Here is what some of the wonderful IAMI Guest students had to say about the courses...

IAMI Guest: Destination, Event & Interior Management

Emily - Senior Stewardess

"I LOVED doing this course, everything was so well thought out and easy to understand from the signing-on process, the information throughout, all the way to the assignment submitting process.

The course was so informative and covered so many different areas, and I loved getting into depth with each subject. The fact that the course covered so much will be so useful throughout my career, and I’ll definitely be delving back into it more than once.

I definitely feel more informed, and more confident! I loved being able to watch videos as well as read text and complete quizzes, it’s a really multi-faceted course.

The destination and events assignments were also so fun and I really enjoyed doing these.

I felt so supported throughout the duration of this course with the 1-1 calls and I never once felt like I couldn’t reach out for support or help if I needed it.

Overall the whole experience was amazing, so much so that I’ve just purchased two more courses! Highly recommend!"

IAMI Guest: Foundations of Leadership

Oliwia - Senior Stewardess

“I found myself looking forward to each new lesson, and although it cost me not one but a couple of late nights, it was totally worth it!

The passion from TYSA and its community truly shines through, making my learning experience even more enjoyable! I'd like to highlight the outstanding support and responsiveness I experienced throughout the course!”

IAMI Guest: Destination, Events and Interior Management

Maja Bergström

"I was very satisfied with the Destination, Events and Interior Management course.

This GUEST course covers all areas related to HOD responsibilities, making it suitable for professional senior interior crew. Content is in various formats, and realistically applicable to an Interior Management role onboard any program.

Instructor feedback was personable, and I also appreciate the fact that TYSA truly valued student feedback, introducing a platform for course-specific student community & networking upon our requests.

Thank you Gemma and the team for being so passionate about training and leadership in this industry. Genuinely recommend the course!"

"I really enjoyed the final assessment call with everyone who has been doing the course at the same time.

It was nice to get to go through everything we had learnt and hear everyone else's ideas. It was a really nice way of keeping the course fresh and relevant."
