Cabin Crew Recurrent Training during COVID-19


1 September 2020, 0900 EDT Montreal



Registration is closed. Recording is now available here.





Restrictions to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), physical distancing and work place closures make it increasingly difficult for cabin crew members to complete the required annual recurrent training programme, mainly with regard to hands-on and simulated exercises such as donning of emergency equipment and participating in group drills.


The Webinar will explore the ICAO Handbook for Cabin Crew Recurrent Training during COVID-19 (Doc 10148), which was developed to provide guidance to States on interim measures that can be taken by operators to modify their approved training programmes due to restrictions that have been put in place to mitigate the spread of infection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
