CABIN CREW TRAINING COURSE
The cabin crew selection process is tough to pass. Coupled with the fact that there are many applicants per job it is essential that you are fully prepared for each element of the selection and interview process. This webpage will provide you with details and tips on how to prepare effectively for the entire cabin crew selection process and also how you can enrol on to our Cabin Crew course.
To begin with we need to take a look at the role of cabin crew:
THE ROLE OF CABIN CREW
Probably the main element of the cabin crew role is to provide passengers with outstanding customer service. We have all been on flights before and most of us would readily admit that the service we received from the cabin crew staff was excellent.
They exude confidence, are always smiling and will do anything within their capabilities to help you and make your flight an enjoyable one. The major airlines place plenty of emphasis on excellent customer service. They do this simply because they airline/passenger industry is extremely fierce and they have to compete in order to win the business from travellers. If a passenger experiences excellent customer service then they are far more likely to return to the airline in the future.
In addition to providing excellent customer service, cabin crew are also trained to deal with emergencies. They are essentially there to protect you and, as far as within their means, ensure you are safe during the flight. Airlines take safety very seriously and as a cabin crew member you will undergo extensive training once you pass the selection process.
As we all know, at the beginning of a flight the cabin crew staff will go through their pre-flight checks, ascertaining that all equipment is stowed away and safe. They will also go through the pre-flight safety routine and provide practical demonstrations of what to do in the event of an emergency.
Cabin crew will also serve you during the flight, deal with any complaints that you might have and also offer to sell you duty free goods. As a member of cabin crew with an airline you will normally have the option of working long or short haul flights.
Typical work activities of cabin crew
The tasks that you will be required to carry out as cabin crew do vary depending on whether you decide to go short haul or long haul. However, to give you a better understanding of the type of work you will have to carry out we have provided you with the following generic list:
- Be in attendance at all pre-flight briefings and safety presentations. It is normally at this time that you will be allocated your working routine and flights and you will also be provided with details of any passengers who have special requirements (dietary or otherwise).
- Conducting you pre-flight duties which may include checking to see if the aircraft is clean and tidy, assessing and checking of all safety equipment and ensuring that you have sufficient food and refreshments for your flight.
- Once you are satisfied it will be your responsibility to welcome on board your passengers, direct them to their allocated seats and carry out a head count to ensure that everyone is on board.
- You will then go through pre-flight safety routines with your passengers ensuring that they are fully secure in their seats, seat belts fastened and that all baggae is safely stored away.
- During flight you will serve meals depending on the length of the flight, serve refreshments, offer duty free goods and also respond to numerous questions and complaints that the passengers may have.
The role of cabin crew can be very rewarding; however, it is important to make you aware at this early stage that the role can be sometimes pressurised, demanding and very hard work. Before you commit to this role you need to consider whether or not you have the right qualities.
