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. Find out how you can launch your
career in the airline, airport, and travel and tourism
industries by phoning the ITC team on 0800 868747

Very few sunbed operators are adher-
ing to New Zealand's voluntary stan-
dard, according to Consumer NZ's
latest mystery shopper survey.
In their fourth mystery shopper sur-
vey, consumer researchers visited 69
sunbed outlets in 13 centres and found
only seven met all the criteria of the
Cancer Society skin cancer adviser
Dr Judith Galtry says the government
needs to regulate the sunbed industry
and require operators to have licences,
as do most Australian states.
A voluntary standard simply isn't
legally enforceable. It's up to the
sunbed operators to comply with it and
the latest Consumer survey has found
yet again that the majority of
operators don't,'' she says.
The standards call for operators to
inform clients about the dangers of UV
radiation, provide goggles for eye pro-
tection and say no to high-risk groups
such as people with very fair skin and
those under 18 years old.
Last year, the International Agency
for Research on Cancer -- part of the
World Health Organisation -- called on
all governments to regulate sunbed
They say even one sunbed session
before the age of 35 increases mela-
noma risk by 75 percent.
The agency reclassified sunbeds as a
group 1 carcinogen -- the same
category as cigarettes.
Recent research by the National
Institute of Water and Atmospheric
Research looked at the UVR levels of
New Zealand sunbeds as measured by
the ultraviolet index.
It found the intensity of radiation at
some wavelengths is several times
higher than ever occurs naturally in
midday summer sunlight.
New Zealand has the dubious dis-
tinction of having the highest mela-
noma incidence rate in the world, so
it's high time the government took
notice and regulated sunbeds. A num-
ber of countries already have controls
to manage the health risks associated
with their operation,'' Dr Galtry says.
