Cabin Crew Training Manager, Chief Cabin Instructor, Manager Cabin Crew – the titles may vary, but our task is the same, to train our Cabin Crew to the highest level possible.

Moderators Noel Houlihan, Aer Lingus and Emil Moberg, Braathens Regional Airlines will guide you through:

  • Initial cabin crew training – the importance of a harmonised approach across the European Union.
  • Practical assessment of cabin crew, using competency based assessment.
  • Retention of crew post pandemic and the challenge of training to fill the void.

Noel Houlihan, Aer Lingus

I started my career as cabin crew 19 years ago, initially with Aer Lingus before leaving to take up roles with a number of regional Irish carriers including Aer Lingus Commuter and Aer Arann. I have specialised in a number of management and training roles during this time including Safety & Emergency Procedures training before eventually re-joining Aer Lingus in 2012 in my current role as Safety Training Officer. Today I am a multi-disciplined training instructor with qualifications in Cabin Safety, CRM, Dangerous Goods, First Aid and I hold a certificate in Aviation Security. I am responsible for leading a team of 35 safety instructors within the Aer Lingus Training Academy and CCTO and my main role includes the day to day running of the Training Academy together with the development of safety and training material across multiple traditional and digital platforms.
