At this year's cruise3sixty, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) has announced eight new training and professional development e-learning courses for the travel agent community, all of which are available online as of April 29.
Created by CLIA’s professional development team, the new Career Seascape courses offer business, niche, geography, sales and professional development content. The courses are accessible via computer anytime on CLIA’s website.
The new courses compliment CLIA’s existing e-learning offerings. The new Intro to Cruising series is available to CLIA’s Diamond Travel Agency Members for free as part of their membership or for $25 per course for all other CLIA members. The initial series includes four course offerings, with additional courses launching later this year: Cruising 101; Cruising 201; Power Selling Skills; and Successful Qualifying. Additional e-learning course titles available for $25 per course are What Have You Done for PR Lately?; Eat, Drink, and Cruise; Sell Your Passion; and Put the Person Back into Selling.
Between May and July, seven additional online courses will roll out. In addition to the new online offerings, some select courses are also being offered in person. For more information on those offerings, contact CLIA Member Services at 885-444-2542.
