Get an attestation

Hi everyone,

I am looking to to gain an attestation - can anyone recommend a training company? Is this going to change when the U.K. leaves the EU?

A lot of people think gaining an attestation means airlines will hire them. This is not the case. Just because you have an attestation does not mean you will have guaranteed employment, in fact many people attend assessment days and still fail. Paying to gain an attestation will not make an airline favour you more over someone else. I would say if you want to gain an attestation, complete a training course with an airline.

If you still wish to do so, SkyPeople offer training courses for attestations.

Isn't it what religious charlatans are always yelling at people to do? Attestify! Attestify!
No wonder it puts employers off! Rather like the time I walked into the Chief Pilot's office with my colander still on my head.

No! Wait...
I too wanted to know what an attesti wotsit was - it's a very odd and unusual word.

Essentially a Cabin Crew 'License". Can't operate without one.

They are a legal requirement, issued by the CAA

Attestation is essentially French for 'Certificate'

Surely there's no cabin crew licence or any equivalent in UK, just a medical cert. required???

EASA, and thus the CAA, requires all Cabin Crew to have a valid attestation.
