If you are considering a career in travel, get amongst the thick of it and train at the purpose-built training centre at Auckland Airport. Construction of the Travel Careers and Training Centre finished in mid-June and the first students are already in the building.
Travel Careers and Training is one of the top 10 private training institutes in the country, including schools for cabin crews, flight attendants travel consultants and tourism professionals. Guy Domett, the training centre’s chief financial officer, says they are delighted about being at the Airport.
“It differentiates us from the rest of the market because they are in suburbia. A great number of our students want to work at the Airport one day so it’s great to be right here. Strategically this has been in the pipeline for a long time so we feel we are in the right place.”
The building, which features double height glazing to showcase a Boeing 737 training fuselage, is unique for New Zealand. A galley and interior of a plane will be added later this year.
The building is one of the first of four new projects in Auckland Airport's Quad precinct.
