Live Animals Regulations (LAR) – a new online eLearning training course out soon

There are many reasons why people transport live animals. The animals may be personal pets, assistance dogs, sporting animals, animals for breeding, zoological animals and species being transported for reasons of science, etc.

Transporting animals especially for long journeys the air transportation is often the only option. In order to treat animals humanely and meet handling standards, personnel involved in the transport of live animals need to be trained to fulfil their responsibilities.

The personnel include, to name a few, ground-handling staff (passenger, ramp and cargo handling), pilots, air crew, animal attendants and forwarding agents.

We wanted to meet these standards when creating our training course for Live Animals Regulations (LAR). Our work is almost done and the brand new course is soon available for you.

With this pre-advice we just wanted to show how excited we are to announce that our new e-Learning training course for Live Animals Regulations (LAR) will be released soon.

Please check our website later on this month for more information.

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

How to use eLearning as part of employees onboarding?

Regardless of your business you need to get new employees aboard smoothly but what is the efficient way? Let’s take a look at one example from Airport Operations.

seoul

New airport ground handling personnel need to study a number of safety and security related topics on top of companys welcome presentations and Q&A’s before they start their work.

A strong argument can be made to suggest that companies use online eLearning as part of initial training. eLearning can take place in the classroom which can help instructor to familiarise students for both the topics and at the same time to eLearning.

Self study courses can be used to deliver precisely the needed topics and information to all students. This enables teacher to get the whole class at the same basic level of knowledge before he or she will start his/her teaching.

We at AirportCollege.com have number of ready to use e-learning products available to cover security, safety and service related training needs with standardised content.

If you don’t use e-learning yet, you can start to improve your company’s productivity today.

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

Staff training should start before hiring people

The recruiting process for new employees takes time when applications must be reviewed, interviews must be carried out and the right persons can eventually be selected for the job. This is often a decision made by those in charge of the interviewing and screening process.

You spend lot of recourses for the recruitment process when choosing best candidates for different jobs. Then, you need to train these new employees before they start to work. Again, your organisation invests a lot of time on training to prepare these new professionals for their work.

What if you could provide a part of the training as 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 position. It also shortens the entire recruitment process. Respectively, it allows the candidate to better understand what the work is about and then decide whether to apply or not.

With online eLearning courses all this can be done with little effort. AirportCollege has a wide selection of online eLearning courses for airport ground handling ready to use whenever you need and wherever you need. You will also save money and training hours.

If you want to hear more about how we have done this with our clients please drop an email to us.

Foster Information Security Culture in your organisation

Cyberattacks are an evolving threat from which all parties in the aviation industry need to protect themselves. The challenge is that cyberattacks come in many different ways and channels. Simple spam emails may allow viruses into the systems, while a more aggressive attacks may cause a distributed denial of service and shutting down the network.

Employee’s behavior has a big impact to information security in all organisations. Information security culture (ISC) needs to be built and improved continuously as it′s a never ending process, a cycle of evaluation and change. Authors are stating that you can manage the information security culture if following five steps will be taken: pre-evaluation, strategic planning, operative planning, implementation and post-evaluation.

″Information Security Culture is a pattern of behavior in an organisation that contribute to the protection of information of all kinds.″

We at Airport College are actively supporting all parties by providing training solutions for better security culture and safer aviation. If you want to know more how we have helped our clients, please drop me a mail.

Best regards,
Pertti

P.S. Please remember that a well-trained employee can even stop the cyberattack!
