Crew Member Self Defense Training – TSA CMSDT

Safety is always a top priority for Flight Attendants on and off duty. Over the last two years, our ability to deescalate and handle unruly passengers has been crucial in taking protective measures for our customers and Flight Attendants.

A great way to enhance our abilities in being aviation’s first responders is through the TSA Crew Member Self Defense Training. AFA strongly encourages active Flight Attendants to participate in these training events.

TSA is currently accepting registrations for April - June classes. Active crew members are eligible for this training program.

The Crew Member Self Defense Training Program provides four hours of training to prepare active crew members of all domestic scheduled carriers for potential physical altercations both on and off the aircraft.

Search for the training course near you and submit the online registration form to register for this no-cost training. Reporting instructions will be provided upon registration and successful verification of employment.
