Open for viewing from 9am MCCAA-EC101110 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 service. 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 feel proud 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.
