In this article, I discuss what to expect while attending initial flight attendant training.
I worked in the airline industry for over 25 years. I worked as an airline flight attendant for over 17 years with America West Airlines, Comair, and Chautauqua Airlines.
Attending initial flight attendant training is challenging, difficult and stressful. However, it is necessary to get through and pass all the required examd to enable you to begin your airline flight attendant career. The airline flight attendant training, is between 4-8 weeks in length. The training is usually held at that airline's main headquarters. As an example, when I went through the initial flight attendant training with Comair, the training was held in a building right next to Comair's headquarters located in Erlanger, KY, very close to the CVG Airport.
My advice to anyone attending initial flight attendant training is, to put everything else on hold. You will need to focus your energy solely on passing the exams, and learning the material. While attending initial flight attendant training with Comair, we started out with 53 people in our class. However, at the conclusion of the 4 1/2 week training, only 27 people actually graduated. It is a very intense, and challenging training course. However, if you can pass all the exams, and get through training successfully, you will look back at this training as a time you will remember.
Due to permanent nerve damage in my knee, I can no longer work as an airline flight attendant. I simply cannot pass the required physical exam. So, I decided to start a business to assist other people as they pursue an airline flight attendant career. I invite you to check out our site:
