Online and Blended Cabin Crew Licensing


Represented by

EPT Aviation Training


Registration number: 2009/023979/07

CAA Accreditation CAA/0103



We offer a Cabin Crew Member Licensing Programme which utilises the blended learning methodology. This part-online programme is based on our accredited South African Civil Aviation Authority and licensing course, and is offered in addition to our traditional Cabin Crew courses.


Through Online Learning you will gain the knowledge and education allowing you the opportunity to advance your career into the aviation industry without the need for you to quit your job.  It is the perfect opportunity for people who are unable to attend traditional classroom training for reasons such as lack of transportation, accommodation, training fees or the harsh realities of work.  This method of learning enables you to schedule your Cabin Crew studies around your lifestyle


What will you learn?

The blended learning programme for the licensing of Cabin Crew consists of an online learning component followed by practical training and assessments. It is recommended that learners spend approximately 268 hours, online, on the relevant theoretical modules. In order for the learner and the trainer to gauge the learners’ progress, there are comprehensive self-study quizzes at the end of each module which need to be completed successfully prior to progressing to the next module. There is constant interaction throughout the theoretical modules between both the learners and the trainer by means of group discussion forums. Communication can also take place via email or telephonically.    


On successful completion of the theoretical training period, learners are required to attend a 2-week residency period, during which practical training and assessments will take place. Prior to advancing to this section of the training, learners are required to write and successfully pass the Controlled Test for the Online Learning Component, which will include all relevant modules covered in the online learning component. Should a learner not meet the 90% pass mark requirement, they will be required to undertake refresher training prior to undergoing the 2-week residency period.  

Please note a minimum of 10 learners and a maximum of 16 learners per class is required.  


To enrol for this online programme, you must be able to access and use the e-learning portal of Alt. Cabin Crew in association with EPT Aviation Training. The e-learning portal provides you with access to the Virtual Classroom, Course content, Forums etc. This portal is accessed through a compatible Internet browser. You will also need software to read any documentation, watch videos and view pictures that are provided to you in the Virtual Classroom. 


To be able to use the e-learning portal, you will need the following:

  • An Internet connection at home – You must have a reliable Internet connection at home. It is not realistic to study online if you only have access at work or in Internet cafes. Although broadband (cable/ASDL) will enhance the experience of using the e-learning portal, it is still possible to study if you only have a dial-up connection.
  • A personal email address – A personal email address is required to facilitate communications related to your studies. Furthermore, this email will also serve as your personal Username. This should ideally be a WebMail service (like Gmail or Yahoo!) rather than a work email address, as you may be unable to access your work email when you are outside of the office.
  • A suitable computer – Generally speaking, if you have a computer running either a Microsoft Windows or an Apple OS X operating system that is less than five years old, it should be fast enough and have sufficient memory to use the e-learning portal.
  • Supporting software – In addition to having a supported Internet browser installed, you must be able to read Adobe Acrobat documents (also called PDFs), view videos and pictures.


Please note that you must have the ability to install and update software on any computer you intend to use for your studies should the need arise.  This means that you might not be able to rely upon a computer belonging to your employer (for example, a laptop you are provided with), as many IT departments do not allow employees to update or install software on company owned computers.


It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a good internet connection and a suitable computer with the relevant supporting software. Should you require further information, please contact us.
