The Next Generation Training Initiative launched

AirportCollege.com has launched the Next Generation Training Development Initiative which combines several research and development projects under one umbrella.

These projects explore current and emerging learning technologies with the objective to identify solutions that will become part of our future training portfolio. In the coming weeks I will share some examples of these ambitious projects.

Emerging training technologies

We focus on 3 main areas in our sub-projects:

  • Virtual Reality (VR)
  • 3D and Augmented Reality (AR)
  • Mobile Training

A range of new technologies and interesting concepts are now emerging. We at Airport College International want to exploit new technologies like Virtual Reality so that they add value to the learning experience and create concrete benefits for learners.

We will share more information about the initiative on our website over the coming few months.

Introduction to Safety Management System (SMS) – an online training course

All organisations that operate in an airport airside environment should have Safety Management System in place.

This is ensure that everything reasonable and practicable has been done to protect the health and safety of employees and others.

Training is a must to understand fundaments of SMS

You must first instruct employees to the fundaments of Safety Management System for “What, Why, How, Who and When” and then how your organisation can report and process safety related occurrences.

Online training courses and real-time reporting system will help your organisation to maintain the integrity of safe operations.

When the system is properly practiced it is an investment that will improve an organisation performance and maintain the integrity of the operation.

We at Airport College International wanted to help organisations and created an Introduction course to Safety Management System (SMS) eLearning for ground handling and airport operations.

It’s soon summer in the Northern Hemisphere and time to prepare for winter!

For six months of the year, the Northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun, while the Southern hemisphere is tilted away. For the next six months, the situation is reversed.

Whichever hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun experiences more energy, and warms up, while the hemisphere tilted away receives less energy and cools down.

This tilt also explains why the days are longer in the summer and then shorter in the winter.

DE-ICING


It’s soon summer in the Northern Hemisphere and time to plan for next winter. Before summer time we are busy in our office to have talks with our clients when up-dating our De-icing e-Learning course for next winter season.

The course is designed in accordance with the International requirements and recommendations to cover theoretical part of the training and we want to ensure that learners will like our pedagogical approach too. Read more ->.

So, invitations for that workshop is on the way  and are looking forward to have course ready right after summer months when annual training takes place.

If you have any interest to hear more about our SnowHow please do not hesitate to contact us.

With best regards,
Pertti Mero

Midsummer in Finland

In the Finnish midsummer celebration, bonfires are very common and are burned at lakesides and by the sea. Often branches from birch trees are placed on both side of the front door to welcome visitors. Swedish-speaking Finns often celebrate the midsummer by a maypole.

Midnight sun is good for our health

An important feature of the midsummer in Finland is the white night and the midnight sun. Because of Finland’s location spanning around the Arctic Circle the nights near the midsummer day are short or non-existent. This gives a great contrast to the darkness of the winter time. Some studies claims that sun may lower your blood pressure. It’s thought that the UV rays triggered the release a compound called nitric oxide from the skin, which relaxes blood vessels, causing blood pressure to fall. So midnight sun is good for our health too.

Ritual include cookouts, a sauna and spending time together

Many Finns leave the cities for Midsummer and spend time in the countryside. Nowadays many spend a few days there, and some Finns take their whole vacation in a lakeside cottage. Rituals include cookouts, a sauna and spending time together. This is how Finns recharge their batteries for long winter period.

We will close our office for few days to enjoy short nights.

For those who are able to have days off from regular work I wish wonderful and relaxing time!

Best regards,
Pertti
