This year, several International Travel College of New Zealand (ITC) students sat down to complete a very challenging test: the IATA Foundation Course final exam. The exam (like the entire IATA course) is intensive and demanding, but ITC is pleased to announce that 100% of its students passed – a great result considering the nature of the test.
“I’m happy to say that ALL my wonderful students passed the final,” says ITC tutor Steve Burke, who has been teaching the IATA course for many years.
“The course is intensive and requires a lot of work from the students. I’m very proud of their efforts.”
ITC celebrated this incredible result with a special on-campus lunch where they were awarded their certificates.
IATA stands for the International Air Transport Association, a global company which is headquartered in Montreal. The IATA Foundation course is a prestigious qualification that’s recognised by both New Zealand and international employers.
The course covers topics such as international air fares and ticketing, ocean cruising, international rail operations, car and motorhome rental, as well as Amadeus computer reservation systems and technology in the travel industry.
Having IATA on their CV is a big win for students, says Steve.
“This will give them a great start in the travel industry, as they have proved that they are capable of putting in a lot of hard work to achieve their goals in their chosen future careers,” he explains.
ITC has a strong track record of IATA success. Several students have achieved the highest score in New Zealand for the IATA exam in previous years. The College is proud to be building on this success in 2018 by supporting even more students to pass this prestigious qualification.
