Coaching and Team Building skills are important skills and give you the confidence to lead individuals and a strong company. Creativity will help you find new ways of doing business and getting the most from your staff.

The CTIE, A Leadership Program for Travel Executives
Every day, owners and executives from the retail agency side to the supplier side of the travel industry are faced with leading the growth and development of their organizations. To lead an organization through growth requires creating and applying the organization’s core values, goals and objectives, developing a cohesive team of employees through encouragement and coaching, keeping an open mind for creativity and opportunity, all while leading the many aspects of change.
Join Patty Noonan, CTC as she dives into the tools inside of the Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE) program designed to help you build and perfect the many skills required by today’s and tomorrow’s executives.
Certified Travel Counselors (CTCs) are required to earn a minimum of ten Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per year to maintain their certification. In addition to being a member of The Travel Institute, our CEU requirement is an effective way to master new skills, attain product knowledge, remain current on industry trends, and continue to develop your role as a travel professional.
Digital credentials are a critical step in the evaluation process as consumers, colleagues, and the industry easily confirm the validity of certification earned through The Travel Institute.
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.
