Do FA's have to run through a typing or do they learn how to to "serve" one plane?

To my knowledge, there is no certificate or rating for flight attendants.

Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

There is no certification for Service on board but...

Much like Pilots, F/A's must get certified on each airplane they fly on. To be certified, they must demonstrate knowledge about the location and operation of emergency and safety equipment location/operation throughout the plane. Furthermore, written and applied knowledge of emergency procedures (forced landing, ditching, evacuation) native to each type. The certification must be on board when the F/A operates on a flight. It must be renewed every year. Ex: An F/A for AC, the certification certification encompasses CRJ, 767, A340 etc... the F/A must pass written and practical test for every single different type in the fleet.

In the UK its much stricter, we are limited to a max of 3 aircraft types, but we are one of the few countries in Europe to require a cabin crew licence although there are moves to introduce this to bring us into lines with other EU nations.
