Begin training before hiring!

Does your organisation invest a lot of resources and time for the recruitment process and training to prepare new employees for their work?

What if you could provide part of the training as online eLearning before you even make the final recruitment decision?

This allows you to understand what kind of competencies and abilities the candidate has for the job. It also gives the candidate a better understanding of the job he/she is applying for, and shortens the entire recruitment process.

With eLearning courses this can be done with little effort

Airport College has a wide selection of online eLearning courses for airlines and airport ground handling companies. Our courses are ready to use whenever and wherever you need them. We can open access to the courses for any small or large number of students very quickly.  

To hear more about how we have done this with our clients, please drop me an email.

It’s 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.

In the Northern Hemisphere it’s time to plan for next winter and what’s why we are updating our De-icing e-Learning course for the coming winter season.

The course is designed in accordance with international requirements and recommendations to cover the theoretical part of the training and we want to ensure that learners will enjoy our pedagogical approach too.

Information Security is essential in the Aviation Business

Aviation business depends heavily on IT systems, and the reliability of data and employees’ behaviour all plays a central role in information security.

In order to protect their information and systems, companies need to focus on people. Awareness training is the first and most important step in preventing cybercrime and information security from being compromised.

Information Security risks are real

According to studies, employees often do not see themselves as part of the company’s information security efforts and therefore take actions that ignore their company’s security interests.

Information security is the practice of preventing unauthorized access to information – electronic and physical.

Employees’ behaviour plays a central role in information security in organisations and the security culture needs to be improved continuously.

Security risks are often higher during holiday periods.  Temporary workers’ are not always aware of companys’ practices and information security risks. Information security should always be part of temporary workers’ orientation training.

Information Security online eLearning course

Airport College International wants to help organisations tackle information security challenges and therefore created an Information Security eLearning Training Course.

Our Information Security Online eLearning Training Course is designed for personnel to gain relevant knowledge and acquire practical skills as to how to avoid information security mistakes.

The purpose of this online course is to

  • Provide information as to how employees can avoid information security mistakes.
  • Provide skills for new employees and refresh the skills of current employees.
  • Help companies arrange training flexibly.
  • Help companies gain compliance with information security recommendations.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.

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 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, 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, 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!
