Today was my annual recurrent training- a day where I am required to sit in a classroom for eight hours to recertify as a flight attendant. Although this day is more relaxed than initial training had been sixteen years ago, I still find it rather stressful. I know this is mostly head games, though.
Most every aspect of this training is a review, but that doesn’t make things any better in my mind. You are required to go through a few scenarios of things that can happen onboard. Even though I’ve never failed, there is always that thought that I may. I’m there in front of my coworkers, after all.
I am thankful that I made it through! I have thoroughly enjoyed this career, and I hope to keep flying for years to come!
