Be Secure International and AM&TS, both EASA Certified Training Organizations, have joined forces. From now on, Cabin Crew training from Be Secure will be organized in the AM&TS Training facilities, creating a unique training environment for future stewards and flight attendants.
The Cabin Crew training is one of the new courses in the joint portfolio. Just as it is for Aircraft Maintenance technics, safety is also for cabin crew top priority. This 15 day basic training leads to certification, which can traditionally only be acquired with an airliner. The certification, a so called “attestation”, gives a direct advantage to the cabin crew applicant, and is accepted by all organizations based on European legislation.
Jerry van den Berg, CEO Be Secure: “This collaboration is unique in the Netherlands. We provide customers with an ideal combination in training – both in terms of content and certification. In addition, Woensdrecht (NL) is a strategically attractive location; many Belgian students are looking for a job in the aviation industry in the Netherlands.”
Cabin Crew training teaches (future) cabin crew to deal with various conditions that may occur during a flight. From normal procedures to emergency landings, in-flight aggression and first aid. “By organizing the practical component of the training in a real aircraft, in our hangar a Fokker 100 and 27, we add an additional dimension to the training. Secondly, the AM&TS hanger is fully certified within the EASA environment. We can not only facilitate Be Secure’s training, but through this collaboration, our ambition to offer our customers a complete training concept is one step closer,” said Wim Blinkhof, Director of AM&TS. “Working together with an organization that, like us, works with and within EASA’s laws and regulations, offers a special opportunity, not only to us but also to our customers.”
The two have also looked to the future. In the long term, the training combination aims to investigate further whether there are opportunities for pilot training, focusing on mandatory flight safety and security issues. Because in addition to flying, pilots must also be aware of the safety procedures on board of an airplane. And these courses will, in the future, also become a possibility.
