AirportCollege kicks off the Zero Emission Training (ZET) initiative

The carbon footprint of air travel accounts for 4 – 9% of the total climate change impact of human activity. While airlines are increasingly committed to improving the eco-efficiency of their operations, we at AirportCollege, are doing our share to make the industry greener.

Emissions down by over 90%

According to its Environmental Policy, AirportCollege is committed to developing environmentally sustainable services for its clients. Our online courses are part of this agenda and allow our clients to cut down training-related emissions by over 90%.

Tools for decision-making

We have launched a study to understand the environmental impact of training and how digital solutions can help us, and our clients reduce the carbon footprint in training development and implementation. The study aims to develop concrete tools for analysis and decision-making – so that we can map the carbon footprint of our actions and compensate training-based emissions.

Contribution for a cleaner environment and less CO2

By improving general awareness of environmental sustainability matters in corporate education it’s possible to make a significant global contribution for a cleaner environment. More updates about the ZET initiative will follow later this year.

We can help you achieve your goals and at the same time help the environment, your people – and save money and time.

Greetings from Montreal, Canada

We have been participating in the ULD CARE 32nd Annual Conference held in Montreal 16-19 September 2019. A record number of key players from airlines, ULD management companies and other stakeholders participated for three days to discuss and find solutions for the industry’s challenges.

ULD CARE – the CARE stands for Compliance, Airworthiness, Regulations and Education. Our role as training service provider is obvious, we are committed to provide cost effective training solutions to the industry, and our contribution to the industry is the ULD60seconds concept, created together with ULD CARE and Finnair.   

Panellists from left to right: Carl Mavromichalis (ULD CARE), Pertti Mero (Airport College International), Frank Mühlenkamp (Jettainer) and Rajasundaram Chidambararaman (Airports Council International, ACI World)

This was our first time at the ULD CARE Annual Conference and we got a change to participate in two important panel discussions: “Reaching out across the air cargo ecosystem” and “Putting ULD CARE Solutions to Use”. Panellists highlighted the importance of training for all operational employees. We must support industry-wide initiatives which help to ensure that operational employees have similar skills and knowledge around the world. This helps us to keep aviation safe.

Our commitment to all matters ULD Operations related is clear and we are looking forward to serving the ULD community and aviation industry in the future, too.

Au revoir et merci Montréal!

Tools for ULD Operations

According to IATA every year, the total cost of both repair and loss of ULDs is estimated at being more than $300 million, excluding flight delays and cancelations due to their unavailability.

Although ULDs are required to ensure the safe and reliable restraint of cargo, baggage and mail during a flight, the standards for using them vary widely across the industry.

The right ULD must be available in the right place at the right time in the right condition. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Just like any other aircraft component, ULDs are regulated to ensure flight safety under all circumstances. These rules are defined by governing bodies such as ICAO and IATA and put into national legislation by each Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Our tools for operational people

  1. – free tools to promote safe ULD operations
  2. ULD Operations eLearning course – reasonable priced online training course

We can help you in training

We at can help airlines, ground handling agents and logistic companies meet ULD training standards with our cost effective ULD Operations eLearning course.

Information Security is essential in the Aviation Business

The 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.

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.


eLearning is good for the environment

Britain’s Open University’s study found that producing and providing eLearning courses consumes an average of 90% less energy and produces 85% fewer CO2 emissions per student than conventional face-to-face courses.

With our service your company is not only achieving huge cost saving for business, but it’s also reducing your carbon footprint with eLearning.

eLearning removes the need to travel for both instructors and students

The cost reduction in expenses and a little help for the environment go hand-in-hand and bring environmental and monetary benefits to your organisation.

When well-designed online training products are used, the training related saving potential is huge, up to 80%. 

When combining these two benefits together, the positive impact is compelling and powerful

It helps organisations increase efficiency, reduce costs and can be linked to your organisations corporate image. We have done several case studies with our clients. If you are interested in hearing about the results, I’ll be happy to share with you what we have learned.
