Should you already run your own travel business or currently work in travel, we offer a Travel-pa two-day conversion course which on completion ensures you are ready to go!
If you have had a travel career in the past and want to reactivate your travel business but need to enhance your knowledge or skill set, we are here to support you. After a two day residential course we offer an add-on self-study course to ensure you are ready to sell all aspects of travel in this ever evolving industry. This program will also suit the travel professional who has only sold one area of travel such as ski or cruise. This course has been designed for you!
For the person who wants to run their own business and is passionate about travel, but with no previous experience, we have developed the Academy. Your journey starts with a preliminary module, an introduction to travel that you complete at home. You are then ready for your 5-day Residential Course. Throughout the week we will take you through the foundations of your business to include writing business plans, marketing plans, selling travel, the technology, and cruise. Following on from this is a self-study, on-line course supported by a manual and over 70 training videos that you work through at your pace. We have a support team ready to step-in whenever they are needed. On completion and passing of the on-line exams, we invite you back for a further 2-day course to ensure you are confident and ready to run your business your way.
