CREDENTIALS THAT MATTER

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 really loved the CTIE certification program. I started a new position and had the task of putting a brand new team together. The Team Building module was really timely, and helped me ensure I was on par with how a team comes together. All the other modules were fantastic too, and currently help me lead and grow my team.

I enjoyed the challenge of earning my CTA through The Travel Institute. Whenever I had a question the answer was almost always immediate. My CTA achievement has given me more confidence and, I believe, more credibility. Whenever I see a degree or achievement designated after someone's name, it gives me a little more confidence in their abilities. I hope my CTA initials make the same first impression.

This course has helped increase my awareness in all areas of the travel industry and has given me so much confidence when selling that I doubled my bookings!

Linda Ann Luizza, CTA Owner, Treasures in Travel

Would absolutely recommend it! The courses really add value, are current and relevant. The certification definitely will make any professional stand out!

    “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

    Certified Graduates Benefit from Digital Credentials

    Special Events

    Now there is a tool that validates agent certification, elevates professionalism, and recognizes higher educational achievement.

    An important tool in the travel agent evaluation process, digital credentials launched in 2019 to offer quick, easy, online confirmation of an agent’s certification status using The Travel Institute as a third-party source. The gold standard in travel agent education for nearly 60 years, certification through The Travel Institute affirms a travel professional’s drive and commitment while also assuring consumers they have found a qualified, capable travel agent. Agents who earn their digital credentials appear in our Certified Travel Agent Directory, combating a lack of industry-wide education standards at a time when technology, specialization and evolving industry dynamics make education and experience more critical than ever.
