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 pre mium 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, wa s 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 caree rs with an airline, airport or ground -handling agent, means that our graduates ready to work in their chosen fields.” The facilities are ce rtainly 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, curre ntly 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 comme nt on how every thing 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 learni ng the right things to gain our future dream jobs.” Both ITC’s Botany and City Campuses are taking 2011 enrolments now.

Are you ready to fly high? Tractor comes off truck Motorists evaded injury when a house-removal truck carrying a tractor crashed and rolled on the northern motorway. A blown tyre is believed to have caused the truck to roll as it travelled north near Silverdale on Tuesday, January 25, at 6.30am. A tractor chained on to the truck came loose and rolled, with both landing on a grass verge to the left of the motorway. Albany station officer Jason Goffin says it was lucky no one was seriously hurt. ‘‘I saw the truck roll over and the tractor on the back break free and do a few 360s towards me.’’ No other vehicles were involved in the crash. The driver suffered scratches and bruising. Motorway lanes were closed while up to 80 litres of hydraulic oil was cleaned off the road.
