First Aid Training...............


Well this week is first aid, very tired this week and the class is finding it hard to keep awake!! but its good when we do the practicals. We have learnt how to deliver a baby and do CPR so far, oh and what to do with a dead body! Its good though, just alot to learn with all the medication and equipment.

Gav is coming in a couple of days!!!!! yey, cant wait!! so excited.
The weekend just gone i went out with my batch and one of our SEP trainers, went to a nice place called Ginsing in the pyrimids in wafi centre. Was really nice in there and the cocktails were yummy! We got a huge discount cuz we are emirates crew and then went in the club next door and got about 60 free drinks!! then we went back to our trainers villa, well the ones left standing! i saw the sunrise again....paid for it the next day though! We just had one day weekend last week as we had security training on the saturday.

Got a few more things for the apartment on saturday and today too....starting to look better every visit...though im not finished yet!

Anyway ive got to cut it short as i have to do some studying!! I will post some pics up here very soon as i will be getting my laptop this weekend.

Love you all loads and miss you too!!
Bye for now xxxxx

My Training so far.....

Hey, sorry i havent updated, just been too busy with the training!
My first week in Dubai was just medicals, inductions, uniform fittings etc.
Then SEP (Safety Emergency Procedures) started, im into my second week of this now and will be glad when its over!! The first week of SEP was in the simulator and classrooms, doing role plays of Turbulence, Decompression, Emergencies and Fire.......Cabin Crew are far from Dumb thats all i can say!!
At the end of last week we had our first exam of basically all we had learnt and i passed....100%!! yey! then this week its been all about the A330 and we had our exam on that today, were told its alot harder than the others so i studied my ass off! Anyway after alot of stressing and worrying i passed and got 98%, you need 80% to pass the exams, otherwise you get a re take or put back a week and have to join another group or failing that they send you home! Hense the stressing!!
Anyway we need to learn about the B777 now and got an exam for that on Wednesday and then theres a few other things they go through and by Thursday night my brain can rest....for a day atleast!! Next week is First Aid. SEP is supposed to be the hardest 2 weeks, so first aid should be fine!
Im really looking forward to next week cuz Gav is coming over to visit....yey!!! cant wait. He gets here on the Wednesday night, so i have training on the Thursday but then can spend the evening with him and then Friday and Saturday im off too. He goes back on Sunday, short visit but its going to be soooo nice to se him!
Last weekend was good, went out on Thursday night to Irish Village which was pretty good and then onto a club near me. All 3 batches (that started the same time) went out so was a good night. I chilled out a bit on Friday, just went by the pool for a bit and got over my hangover!! Saturday i was by the pool for a bit and then went off to buy a TV for the apartment, me and the other girls are going 3rds in and it was dirt cheap, just need to get Showtime now (like sky) and i think Lucy (flatmate) and her boyfriend are sorting that tomorrow.
Anyway ive rambled enough now so im signing off now and will update again prob at the weekend. Hope everyone is good and im missing you all....espec Chloe!! xxx

Arrived in Dubai!

Well, im finally here! Got here on Saturday morning (midnight). The flight was really good, think i watched 1 film, 3 friends episodes and 3 heros episodes on the flight! the entertainment is great!
Im living with 2 British girls who are really nice and im on the Sheik Zayed Road which is the main road, really busy but right in the centre of it all. My room is pretty big and i have a balcony overlooking the main road and my bathroom is just accross the hall. The building has a pool and gym which is quite nice though i havent used them yet as ive been too busy!!
Saturday i went to the Mall of Emirates (Huuuugge!) with another girl who started the same time as me and is in my building.
Sunday was induction and uniform fitting. There are 3 batches started the same time. My batch got our uniform at the end of the day. Monday was grooming so i wore the full uniform the first time, yep and the lovely red lipstick! it actually looks really nice all together.
Tuesday was medicals and today was a corporate induction. Tomorrow is the start of SEP which stands for Safety Emergancy Procedures, im told its the hardest 2 weeks of the training with lots of long days and exams. We have Friday and Saturday off so im planning on using the gym and pool and taking a trip to Ikea to brighten up my room.
I will write more when i have chance but for now....this is all your gettin!!
Love Lis xxx
