Overview of Competency-based Training for Cabin Crew and the Use of Child Restraint Systems in Air Travel 

    1 December 2017, Singapore Aviation Academy 

With many lives and businesses depending on air transportation today, safety in the aviation industry remains of paramount importance. As a regulator,the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) continues to drive the highest standards of safety, benchmarking international standards and best practices. Working with industry partners like you, we seek to promote a strong safety culture and embed a robust safety framework through greater collaboration and engagement with the aviation community.

In this talk, the aviation industry will gain an overview of how competency-based training can improve safety and the efficiency of the airlines’ cabin operations. Operators will be able to see the benefits when they embark on the general concepts of competency-based training and assessments and this experience will be shared from an airline that has implemented such a programme.

Also included in the talk is the discussion on infants flying safer. There will be an overview of ICAO’s Doc 10049’s guidance on this with the end goal that information is disseminated to the general travelling public for parents/guardians travelling with children to make an informed decision on the manner of air travel they choose for their children. Innovation in the design of child restraint systems have also pushed this discussion and there will be a sharing on the different types of child restraint systems available to the travelling public and their overall benefits. The industry will find it beneficial in learning about the different possibilities and its implementation from an airline’s perspective.

We look forward to your active participation at this Safety Series talk.
