Cabin Crew Attestation
The Cabin Crew attestation (CCA) is a professional qualification.
It consists of mandatory courses, and an associated examination in line with EASA Aircrew Regulation, the European Aviation Safety Agency.
The initial certification training (CCA) must be provided by an organisation approved by a civil aviation authorities of a member state of EU (CCTO). This certificate is then recognized throughout Europe.
CCA is valid for 5 years from their creation date if you don’t fly. You can renew your certification by completing an adapted training program that is shorter and less costly than the initial training.
After successfully passing the exam, you will obtain the CABIN CREW ATTESTATION Issued in accordance with the official EASA Form 142 Issue 1.
