The 4 week program is only taught at our private training center on the island of Mallorca Spain in the city of Palma. Palma Mallorca (Airport Code: PMI) is known for its beautiful weather and because it is in the center of the Mediterranean Sea it provides quick and easy access to all major cities in Europe. 

Low cost international airlines like Norwegian Air and Etihad Airlines provide low cost flights from around the world to the island. Low cost inter-Euro airlines like Ryan Air, Air Berlin, Air Europa, and Vueling also offer low cost flights from many destinations around Europe directly to the island.  

Travel cost and housing/accommodations are not included in the cost of training. Recommendations on hotels, hostals or rentals can be provided. AirBNB is no longer a "legal service" on the island as of May 2018. For housing recommendations please contact us at:
