The In­ter­na­tional Travel Col­lege of New Zealand (ITC) has 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, 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 Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Kerry Pri­est­ley. “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.

“I am learn­ing so much about the travel in­dus­try,” stu­dent Ali­son Har­ris says. “This course is groom­ing me for a job at the air­port.”

“My train­ing at ITC has def­i­nitely helped me with my con­fi­dence and knowl­edge of the travel and tourism in­dus­try and thanks to them and my hard work, it has all paid off. I am now work­ing with an ex­cit­ing ca­reer as a flight at­ten­dant for Emi­rates.” Lisi Kai­hau (2012 Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in Avi­a­tion grad­u­ate).

Both ITC’s Botany and City cam­puses are tak­ing 2013 en­rol­ments now.
