We train our cabin crew to be competent, confident -Emirates.

The Training Manager, Induction Crew Training at Emirates Airlines training school in Dubai, Violet Anyonge has declared that, the airlines has a system whereby the crew are trained to be competent and also confident in carrying out what they are supposed to do physically.

Anyonge who made this known while taking some Nigerian journalists round their training facility at the Emirates Aviation College (EAC) in Dubai recently, said the college apart from teaching their cabin crew skills in terms of knowledge, has thousands of attendees in various training courses, covering different disciplines ranging from Safety and Emergency Procedures, Medical Training, to Service and Image.

Her wirds: 'Apart from teaching them the skills in terms of what they need to evacuate passengers in tmes of emergencies; for us it is also important for them to practice so that when they go out, they will be competent in terms of knowledge and also confident in carrying out what they are supposed to do'.

Anyonge also said that the training college caters for both new cabin crew recruits as well as existing crew.

Opened in 2007, Anyonge said the EAC Crew Training facility supports training in a number of key learning areas for new recruits, the ab-initios, who undergo an intense 8 weeks of training with the training centre housing a variety of specialised training rooms and equipment to support learning in the areas of: Safety and Emergency Procedures; Medical Training; Security Training, Cabin Service Training, and Image and Uniform amongst others.

While declaring that Emirates training has both theoretical and practical components, Anyonge stated: 'Here they practice how to jump and how to instruct their customers to jump. They will be having different scenarios, they will be told that they have crashed either in the desert or water. There are a lot of tabulars in the simulators; so you actually feel that you have crashed. What we are looking at is to access how assertive are the crew in making sure that they can control the passengers evacuation.'
