In an increasingly competitive global marketplace, CTA®, CTC®, and CTIE® certification allows graduates to differentiate themselves. Recognized as an educational gold standard in the retail travel industry for over 50 years, these certifications affirm that the individual is driven to achieve and has an ongoing commitment to their career, consumers, and the travel industry. A recent article in the Washington Post, How to Find a Travel Adviser Amid the Pandemic, highlighted the power of a trusted travel agent directory and the strength of the Travel Institute’s Certification programs.
Anticipated to become a routine step in the travel agent selection process for consumers, colleagues, and the industry, digital credentials enable quick and easy confirmation of an agent’s stated certification using The Travel Institute as a third-party source.
In addition, digital credentials combat a lack of industry-wide education standards at a time when technology, specialization and other industry dynamics make agent education and experience more critical than ever in serving consumers.
Now there is a tool that validates credentials, elevates professionalism, and recognizes higher educational achievement.
