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.

If you are interested in hearing more about our SnowHow please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sustainable Training with eLearning

According to our Environmental Policy, we are committed to developing online eLearning training services which support and promote sustainable air transport.

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 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.

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%, as we have stated earlier.

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.

eLearning can produce great results

We can help you achieve your goals and at the same time help the environment, your people – and save money and time. All this can be achieved with eLearning when the solution is designed correctly and is of the highest professional quality.

If you would like to know more about us and our solutions, please send your request by e-mail directly to me.

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!

Best regards,
