The Traditional Route Vs The Attestation Route

Traditional Route- Traditionally all of the required knowledge has been passed on by the airlines themselves in one big intensive course lasting typically 3-5 weeks. The subject areas are loosely the same for all airlines. But the running order, structure, and content of the initial training course has varied from one airline to another. Each airline has gained approval for it’s own particular way of doing things in the cabin, and its own particular way of training new crew. As a part of that training process, the trained crew must attain an ‘Attestation’ to say they understand the generic part of the training - i.e. the aspects of their course which would apply to all airlines and all aircraft types. Traditionally in the UK this has been included in the airline training.

The Attestation Route - A New Opportunity
In mainland Europe the process is more modular. The modern way is for crew to gain the ‘Attestation’ course themselves and then approach the airlines already part qualified. The airlines then top up that training with their own company specific procedures and then the aircraft type you are allocated to. Increasingly UK airlines are re-structuring to enable them to recruit new crew who are similarly already part qualified. It makes their training process shorter, saving them money and getting you flying quicker. This allow to have as head start over the other applicants if you attend an airline recruitment day or an interview, already in possession of this real qualification. It demonstrates your commitment to your career, proves you can pass CAA regulated tests, and makes you a much more employable candidate. We offer the ‘Attestation’ of Cabin Crew Initial Training as an independent course - Your chance to invest in your own career. This is not to be confused with other college based courses. The Attestation is a true qualification, is regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority, and is the same as possessed by all cabin crew flying with European registered airlines.
