The CCA (Cabin Crew Attestation)

To obtain the CCA, or Cabin Crew Attestation, it is necessary to complete specific training in a EASA-accredited organisation.

The CCA is the qualification for Cabin Crew.

It is valid within the Member States of the European Community.

This is why airlines based in France or in Europe hire the persons holding this attestation.

Objectif PN is the only school to offer you theoretical and practical training in Lyon several times a year.

We regularly update our training planning.

However, don’t hesitate to contact us to find out the estimated dates of our next training sessions to become a abin Crew.

The CCA Training

The training consists of a theoretical and a practical part.

Two main subjects compose the theoretical training:

=> Experienced aviation staff will train you with the following skills : C01, C02, C03, C04, C06, C07, C08 et C09.

=> Medical staff specialising in the aeronautical sector train you with the C05 (Aeromedical aspects).

Finally, at the end of this theoretical training, the candidate can take the theoretical test, the first steps necessary to obtain the CCA diploma.

The duration of the training is 198 hours and is spread over 3 consecutive months from the beginning of the training session. Several sessions are organised each year (see planning).

The CCA theoretical test

The theoretical test takes the form of a multiple choice question. It consists of at least 70 questions and lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Candidates who have obtained at least 75% in this test are declared admitted.

There is no negative point for : a false answer, no answer or in the case of several answers to the same question.

The French Civile Aviation Authority (DGAC) provides the results immediately in the case of a computer-based test or approximately 1 month after the examination. Admitted candidates will receive a Cabin Crew Attestation valid for 2 years from the examination date.

This will enable them to take the practical CCA examination, which is essential for becoming a Cabin Crew. Civil aviation organises four theoretical examination sessions per year.

The CCA Practical Test

It is an oral and handling examination which takes place in an approved DGAC (French Civile Aviation Authority) practical centre.

– Safety :

Swimming pool exercises, fire extinguishing, handling of respiratory protection equipment and all the safety equipment on board.

– First aid :

Cardiac resuscitation and interventions on a sick or injured person.

The candidate must obtain a minimum score of 12/20.
Any score below 10/20 (or 6/20 for the pool event) in either part of the event is eliminatory.
The DGAC communicates the results for the CCA diploma in the month following the examination. Admitted candidates will receive a practical certificate valid for five years if they are not practising.
