Kostyantyn Shavrin

Tourism Business and Airline Studies Year 1

Working Full-time

Kostyantyn is from Cavan and studied QQI Level 5 Tourism with Airline Studies course at Cavan Institute.

"I am a graduate of Technological University Dublin holding a Bachelor of Engineering Degree in Aviation Technology and Bachelor of Science (1st Class Honours) Degree in Transport Technology.
I am currently employed as a Technical Project Manager within the Aircraft Redelivery Department in Santos Dumont, primarily focusing on the management of aircraft transitions between the airlines, lessors, and aircraft owners, technical records audit, aircraft physical inspections, and aircraft repossession at the time of airline default.
Like every student out there when I completed my Leaving Certificate, I had no idea which course to choose and where I wanted to go and study further. The only interests I had were in aviation, business and languages. After spending some time searching the available courses that provided the opportunity to study all three, I chose to go to Cavan Institute and study Tourism. After completing the course, it gave me a clear understanding of where and how to move further using the Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS). After much thought and deliberation around CAO time, I went the aviation route which brought me to where I am now.
The tourism course itself gives you a good overall understanding of tourism, heritage, aviation and customer service and prepares you to get work in all these areas.
Basically, by choosing this course you can decide where you want to progress your career further if you are still not sure after completing you Leaving Cert, and even during the course while you are still studying.
Sometimes it is hard to know what career to pursue after your Leaving Cert but doing this course gives you time to think about and research all your options. With so many courses out there to choose from in all the universities and institutes of technologies going to Cavan Institute to do this course gives you the time and space to do this.
For anyone thinking of studying at Cavan Institute and further progressing your career, I would highly recommend completing the Tourism and Business course. Enjoy your studies."
