Medical Aspects and First Aid Training (CC)
Cabin crew should have an understanding of relevant human anatomy and physiology, and first-aid training should include the management of commonly occurring medical conditions and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Cabin crew should be able to recognize a medical emergency and to provide basic care until trained medical help is available, from on-board health professionals, from ground based support teams (remote assistance) or from care providers after landing. Cabin crew should be competent in the content and appropriate use of any first aid kits and other equipment.
Medical Aspects and First Aid training consists of practical and theoretical 16 hours training.
