All Cabin Crew are required to be holders of an Attestation of Safety Training. This is in line with legislation that came into force throughout Europe in 2008. This document is a certificate of initial cabin crew training that states the holder has completed the required and approved training to be cabin crew and is now ready to progress onto specific aircraft type training. However it is much more than just a certificate as it is a recognised document under European regulations and which can only be issued by an organisation approved a National Aviation Authority in Europe.
EASA Part-CC Cabin Crew Regulations
EASA Aircrew Regulation Part-CC requires each cabin crew member to undergo initial training and to hold an attestation of that training. Active Plane Training is an approved Cabin Crew Training Organisation and as such, can deliver the required training and issue the Attestation. Active Plane Training is one of those organisations that has the approval of the UK Civil Aviation Authority to deliver Initial Training and also issue Cabin Crew Attestations.
Why get an Attestation?
Operators will look favourably on candidates for Cabin Crew who already hold an Attestation, as this is the only formally recognised qualification as per European legislation. It demonstrates to the airlines that you have the capabilities to train to a level acceptable to the Authority and it also gives the airlines the opportunity to cut down training costs by accepting crew members who already hold this qualification. The Attestation will show the Operators your commitment to the role of Cabin Crew and that you have already proven and reached a required standard. Please note that European regulations require all cabin crew pass a medical examination before operating as crew.
The Attestation is recognised through Europe and Operators are required under the regulations to accept this. Airlines outside Europe will not be able to accept the Attestation as part of your training however it is a very clear statement to any worldwide airline that you are trained to a high standard and that you have the capabilities to complete training successfully.
To obtain the required Attestation of Initial Safety Training you must successfully complete our 7 day Initial Cabin Crew training course and pass all the required examinations and checking.
