Throughout July, travel agents can enroll in the Certified Travel Associate (CTA®), Certified Travel Counselor (CTC®), or Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE®) programs and qualify to receive a 50-percent savings thanks to the generous scholarships from The Travel Institute Fund.
“I believe certification is one of the absolute best ways to promote YOUR professionalism every single day of the year. Having those three little letters after your name is no small thing. It shows to your current and future clients that you’re invested in yourself, in your brand, and in your expertise.” —Vicki Freed, CTC, Royal Caribbean International
There are no upcoming events at this time.
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.
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.
