What is an Attestation?
If you wish to work as Cabin Crew in commercial air transport within a Member State of the European Community you must hold a valid Cabin Crew Attestation (CCA). This is a certificate of professional competency which permits you to discharge the duties of Cabin Crew on European Community registered aircraft (source UK CAA). To obtain the CCA you need to attend a training course that is delivered by an organisation approved by a European National Aviation Authority.
Why should I get an Attestation?
EASA Regulations require each cabin crew member must undergo initial training and hold an attestation of that training. Corporate Flight Training is a Transport Malta Civil aviation Directorate (TM CAD) approved Cabin Crew Training Organisation (CCTO 008) and we are approved to deliver the required training and issue the Cabin Crew Attestation.
Many airlines look favourably upon candidates who are in possession of a valid Attestation of Cabin Crew. This means the company training time is cut down as the company is only required to conduct an operator conversion/aircraft type training. Holding an Attestation of Cabin Crew also demonstrates you have reached the required standards of training, have gained the required knowledge and your commitment. It gives candidates excellent cabin crew employment prospects and makes you much more employable than candidates without the Attestation.
For corporate aircraft operators of 19 seats or less, by employing Flight Attendants who hold an EASA Cabin Crew Attestation the operator can utilse them as Cabin Crew who are able to participate in safety related duties.
The EASA Cabin Crew Attestation is valid for all European airlines and operators.
Who is the course for?
We have two options for training based upon the level of candidate experience. We deliver two monthly Attestation of Cabin Crew courses.
Six Day CCA Course – this is suitable for all candidate levels and new to aviation and for those with prior cabin crew experience.
Five Day Advanced CCA Course – this course is suitable for candidates who have been cabin crew previously and for corporate/business aviation and VVIP flight attendants.
What does the course include?
All candidates will receive a 58-page pre-course study booklet to get you started on your Cabin Crew journey and to prepare you for the course.
The course includes a wet drill performed in the swimming pool, an opportunity to get to grips with flotation equipment, aircraft life rats and survival equipment.
The course also includes a live fire drill in the rig and smoke-filled cabin exercise at the fire station by our fire crew training team and a chance to tour the fire station
Each candidate will receive a copy of the CFT Operations manual which is yours to keep and take away.
Will it help me find a job as cabin crew?
Absolutely, many airlines recruit candidates who hold an EASA Cabin Crew Attestation. It is truly an investment in your future career and looked upon favourably by airlines and aviation recruiters.
In the corporate aviation sector many companies now look to employ Flight Attendants holding an EASA Cabin Crew Attestation in order for them to function in all safety related duties regardless of the aircraft seating capacity,
Testing and Examinations
Throughout your course you will be tested to consolidate your learning and understanding of the subject. On the last day of your course you will complete a final examination which must be passed in order to be issued with the Attestation of Cabin Crew. The course is extremely regulated and does require a high level of competence.
Don’t panic, if you fail a modular test or the final examination you will be given an opportunity to resit. Our team of instructors are on hand to mentor, coach and guide you every step of the way to ensure you are fully confident and are able to pass the examination with flying colours.
