The Travel Institute announced that it has launched two new destination specialist courses: Northern and Central Italy and Southern Italy and the Islands. This means the Travel Institute now offers a total of 12 courses.
“The amount of insider information we had developed for Italy was beyond what could effectively be contained, and more importantly retained, in just one course,” said Pat Gagnon, CTC, the institute’s director of program development. “Breaking the content into two allowed us to include a lot of insider information that will make our participants true experts of this perennial favorite vacation destination.”
The Northern / Central course covers the northwest regions of Piedmont and Valle d’ Aosta and the territory south to Lazio. The Southern Italy / Islands course reaches the area extending from Abruzzo, Molise and Puglia to the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Each course explores the major cities, attractions and specialties in each area.
Each curriculum is available in two formats: online ($54) and in print ($84, plus shipping), and each is worth 10 CEUs for all CTAs, CTCs, or CTIEs taking the new courses. Sponsors of the DS Italy series are IC Bellagio, Insight Vacations, Trafalgar Tours, and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection.
