JCBA Section 11.B.1. requires training compensation to be no less than three (3) hours flight time pay and credit for each day of training. Review Section 11.B. for all other related training compensation such as pay for deadhead to and from training for those required to attend training away from their base and trip guarantee procedures when it is necessary to drop a trip to attend required training either because of a minimum day off issue or in those instances where training is not provided on any of a Flight Attendant’s days off during her/his must go (due) month.

Additionally, beginning in December 2019 for the 2020 CQ year, the company is launching CQ trimester CBTs to replace the previously required method for CBT completed. Each CBT is required to be completed during three designated time periods.
