We Support Professionalism!  We Support You!

The SoCal ASTA Chapter Board of Directors voted unanimously to support education and promote professionalism by awarding full scholarships to active members who wish to earn their certified designation from The Travel Institute:

Full Scholarships

The Travel Institute CTIE Certification Certified Travel Industry Executive

 

The Travel Institute CTC Certification Certified Travel Counselor

 

Now is the time to get your industry recognized credentials.  You’re good at what you do, but do potential customers know it?  Do suppliers know it? Do your peers know it when you are at industry events?

The CTA, CTC, and CTIE programs help passionate career-minded people learn how to become better businessmen and women and advance the value and understanding of a true travel professional.  It is more than placing letters after your name.  Becoming certified by The Travel Institute makes a statement about who you are and the commitment you have made to your career.

Customers like dealing with an industry recognized professional, and your certification will let them know you are serious about what you do.

My designations are important to me. I take time to explain them to my customers so they understand the rigorous two-level certification and testing as well as the education requirements each year.   I encourage all ASTA members to do the same, set yourself apart, and make an investment of time because SoCal ASTA Chapter is offering you the dollars. -Tama Holve, CTC, CTIE

I remember my mentor, Randy Garfield, former President, Walt Disney Travel Company, challenged us to raise the bar on professionalism and earn our certification from The Travel Institute.  I supported him then, and I still do as I crusade for professionalism in our industry. -Pamela Irwin, CTC
