New entrant course


Once you have been recruited by an airline to work as a cabin crew member you will have to complete a mandatory 4-6 week training course which is governed by the Civil Aviation Authority and the European Joint Aviation Authorities. This training course is called SEP (Safety & Emergency Procedures) the SEP training is paid for by the airline plus you will also get your first month’s basic wages.

During this time you will be trained on:

g   Aircraft Evacuation

g   Ditching (landing on water)

g   Decompression

g   Fire Fighting

g   Passenger Management

g   Security Related Issues

g   Extraordinary Situations

g   First Aid

g   Survival

Some of this training is conducted within different simulators to practice the drills and procedures needed to deal with different types of emergencies.

Because this training is extremely expensive it is only offered to people recruited as cabin crew, however there is an airline recognised online training course available which would give you an excellent insight into what you can expect. For more information please visit 

Once you have successfully completed the SEP training you will then be put on a probationary period from 3 to 6 months where your performance will be assessed by senior cabin crew and airline trainers. After the initial new entrant training, cabin crew must undergo recurrent training every 12 months and will re-tested.
