We have witnessed 47 cabin crew graduations all in all from Philippine Airlines, PAL Express, Cebu Pacific and CebGo and every newly winged cabin crew all said one thing, training was indeed very hard and nerve-racking! These cabin crew members could have all been valedictorians in college if only they applied the same study habits they had during initial training. Yes, that includes the memorization and understanding of about 1000+ pages manuals in a span of 2 to 3 months.
We always have to remember that the training is very stringent because a cabin crew's job deals with the safety of passengers primarily, comfort and service is secondary. Safety knows no mistakes and every little thing can result to injuries and even lives.
Airline standards when it comes to safety are very high as they have also to be in compliant with international aviation laws and standards.
So to the newly hired cabin crew about to undergo the rigorous initial cabin crew training, here are some tips from flight attendants and stewards on how to make it through.
So as you go through training, remember these tips. Good luck!
