“I enrolled on a Diploma in Tourism Management course at Quantum Education, Auckland, New Zealand. My motivation was to gain valuable learning, in order to start a career in travel and tourism, with a strong leaning towards commercial aviation, and the significant role that it plays worldwide.”

“In the course of my studies at Quantum, I was granted an internship at Discover the World, Auckland, which has the GSA contract for Air Tahiti Nui [TN]. The Auckland office is the main office for the South West Pacific, apart from the Head Office in Papeete, French Polynesia. Initially, my role was working one day per week, which complemented my study days at Quantum Education.”

“In early 2015, I was granted a full-time position with Air Tahiti Nui, in the Customer Service and Support Team. This was very pleasing for me, and as well as being a team member at TN, I graduated in my CTH Diploma at the same time. The Diploma looks great framed!”

“The learning I gained at Quantum Education was absolutely invaluable! I’m now on my chosen career path in commercial aviation. I shall continue my studies in various aspects of this exciting industry, so as to expand my aviation, tourism and travel knowledge, and progress my career, It’s a great ride at the moment!”
