The program aims to ensure the comfort and safety of domestic and international passengers. “This is a way to show perspective employers, chief pilots, anybody’s who’s in the hiring realm [that] recipients of this accreditation have achieved a certain skill set,” said independent contract flight attendant Karen Hall. “It’s another way of benchmarking their expertise.”
