3. Applicability

  1. Initial Training is required for persons who have not been previously employed by the air operator as a flight attendant and for those whose annual training validity has expired for the periods shown in the requalification requirements in section 4.
     
  2. Line Indoctrination shall be completed within ninety days of fulfilling the requirements of the ground-training portion of the air operator's approved training program. Where the trainee has not completed Line Indoctrination within the required ninety days, the trainee may requalify by completing Requalification Training, Annual Training and Line Indoctrination or another Initial course.
     
  3. Operational Experience is required during the first year with each air operator following Line Indoctrination. Where the person has not acted as a crew member at least once in each 90-day period following Line Indoctrination, they may requalify by completing Requalification Training and Annual Training. This is not transferable between air operators.
     
  4. Annual Training is required each twelve-month period following completion of Initial Training and for those crew members whose training validity has expired for the periods shown in the requalification requirements in section 4.
     
  5. Aircraft Type Training is required in order to qualify and maintain qualifications on each aircraft type to which that crew member will be assigned to duty. When an air operator introduces a new aircraft to the fleet, Initial (aircraft specific) is required but may be modified to highlight differences where the operator has other aircraft of the same type/manufacturer in the fleet already. Where a modified program is submitted for approval, the operator shall show that its content is adequate to ensure qualification standards are met.

    Note: The phrase “same type/manufacturer” means where the air operator has other aircrafts by the same manufacturer AND the aircraft type is similar. For example, an operator that currently is operating the Airbus A-320 could provide differences training when introducing the A-319; however, an operator who is operating a Boeing 737 would not be able to provide differences training when introducing a Boeing 747 to the fleet.

         
  6. Requalification Training is required for crew members whose training validity period has expired for a period specified in the requalification requirements as shown in section 4.
