Skyborne Airline Academy has received approval from the UK’s CAA for its Cabin Crew Attestation (CCA) training course, with the first intake commencing training in August.
Based at Skyborne’s headquarters in Gloucestershire, the course provides a first step for cabin crew to learn and carry out their duties in the UK and the European Union, before moving on to type-specific training with their chosen airline.
Ian Cooper, Chief Operating Officer of Skyborne, said, “We have specifically designed this course with an emphasis on learning the industry fundamentals, best-practice customer service and professional standards to give our trainees the core competencies and skills required to be a valuable and effective crew member.”
In addition to the attestation training, the recruits will complete a customer service training module to prepare them for the demands of the service-driven industry. Swimming exercises with a life raft will also be completed at a local pool.
Cooper added, “Having begun my aviation career as cabin crew at Britannia Airways, I know how essential complete training is. By providing ‘real life’ scenarios for our trainees to experience we ensure they are truly prepared if they had to face one of these situations whilst working.”
The CCA course will be led by Hajati Treacher-Morely, Skyborne’s head of cabin crew training, who has more than 30 years of experience with British Airways. She will be supported by instructors who have worked for a range of airlines, including KLM and AirTanker.
The cost of the course is £1,100 inc VAT.
