International Cabin Attendant Training School Celebrates ‘Purpose-Filled’ Mission in 7th Founding Anniversary
International Cabin Attendant Training School or known as ICATS celebrated their 7th founding anniversary last April 5, 2017 held at Crowne Plaza, Manila. As a beacon for young dreamers conquering the skies, ICATS has been successful fulfilling new hopes by providing top-notch academic training for aspirants in the past few years. During their anniversary, they reminisces its dynamic history while keeping motivated to meet challenges of the future.
International Cabin Attendant Training School was established in 2009 by Princess Joy Garcia, ICATS CEO and Co-Founder, Arthuro De Loeon and the late Armie Giao. They has been steadfast in their mission to meet the demands of the airline service industry by helping Filipino dreamers to reach their highest potential.
In year 2010, ICATS launched its first batch with only 3 enrollees but their team was not discouraged about it – the challenged they faced fired up their desire to succeed, with the next batched showing great potential for ICATS to soar higher. The rapid increase of enrollees in 2014 required ICATS to transfer to a bigger venue with more classroom.
God was faithful to ICATS that in 2017, the school continued to expand its wings by moving to a more spacious venue to further accommodate the continuous rise of enrollees. – Princess Joy Garcia.
To date, ICATS has provided the hospitality airline industry with more than 200 highly-trained graduates who now hold vital positions in prestigious local and international commercial airlines such as Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Oman Air, Fly Nas, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Air Asia, among others.
ICATS launced the “ICATS Cabin Trainer” earlier this year – a mock room that is a replica of an aircraft’s Business and Economy class setting. This allows students to not only get an authentic eel of an aircraft’s in-flight atmosphere but also the chance to better educate themselves in their practical training, from aircraft familiarization and emergency procedures to in-flight services.
The countdown leading to ICATS’ anniversary is meaningfully marked with special events that includes community-giving and volunteer service. They conducted a series of outreach visitations in seven charity institutions which includes Precious Heritage Children’s Home, Tahang Balik Alay, Home for the Golden Gays and many more.
This was followed by a Dedication and Worship Service last April 5, 2017 and blood-letting donation conducted in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross held last April 6, 2017. To conclude its celebration, they conclude a Grand Gala Night with the them “Rejoicing Years of Passion, Advancing the Mission”, which held last April 7, 2017.
Setting the stage for the years to come, ICATS is more than ready to conquer the skies and the world anew for those who are passionate in chasing bigger dreams and life-changing opportunities.
