The International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC)
has just opened a brand new Airport Training Centre
at its City Campus. The centre will be the second of its
kind in the country, the first having opened at ITC's
Botany Campus in 2009.
ITC, a premium supplier in the airline, airport and
travel and tourism industries, recently won the award
for innovation at the New Zealand Tourism Awards.
"We know our Airport Training Centre, where we
run our Certificate in Aviation, was a real contributing
factor in that,
" says ITC's Marketing Director Claire
Huxley. "We are always seeking innovative ways to
provide our students with real-life experience, and
the practical nature of the course, which focuses on
careers with an airline, airport or ground-handling
agent, means that our graduates ready to work in
their chosen fields."
The facilities are certainly something special -- ITC's
huge airport training centres simulate real-world
airports, including check in, customs, gate lounges,
and even planes where students are trained in all
aspects of in-flight ser vice.
The Certificate in Aviation course also incorporates
the CODECO online check in system, currently used
by 52 airlines worldwide. Students are trained to
handle the stages before and during check in, check in
variations and irregularities, and gate handling. Other
specialist units include dealing with dangerous goods,
aviation security and baggage processing.
"I am learning so much about the travel industry,"
student Alison Harris says. "This course is grooming
me for a job at the airport."
There is a real confidence when you speak to the
Certificate of Aviation students -- they know this is the
right place for them to be. Student Helen says that after
a visit to the airport "and having the staff members of
Menzies Aviation comment on how everything we are
learning here is relevant to a future job at the airport,
it made me feelproud to have chosen to do this course
and know that we are learning the right things to gain
our future dream jobs."
Both ITC's Botany and City Campuses are taking 2011
enrolments now. Find out how you can launch your
career in the airline, airport, and travel and tourism
