Hi psa-baby. I've not worked for Servisair, but have worked as a PSA before, and during your training you'll be covering areas like security, customer service, how the airport works, individual airline policies, using check-in computer systems and possibly learning manual check-in also. My course was only nine days long, but it was only handling one airline and the days were quite long, but hope this gives you a rough idea.

You will love it. Tad boring to begin with, but if you can put up with dangerous goods training, AAA and Security, and the 24hr clock for a few hours in a classoom, then the irrate pax that you have to face should be a walk in the park. And you should listen to sat1.he/she is a trainer within servisair after all.........allegedly oh, and by the way, get your glad rags on,its the xmas party on the 12th,

Sorry to dash your hopes there towteambase but psa-baby wont be at Stansted.

The training goes something like this

3 days corp induction
6 days passenger training
5 days computer training

The computer training length will depend on what system you will be trained on. Then i would expect you will have some online shadowing after that

I dont recall STN ever being mentioned there my old china, just passing on what i have come across in the past. Im sure there is some corporate stuff they have to do that is generic to ALL stations.

or you could do what i did. Do 2 days of Pax Service training, get bored as f**k, and then nag your way onto Dispatch.
Way more interesting.
ETC
