Hurtigruten has announced the launch of “Hurtigruten Academy,” an online education program for travel agents wishing to participate in Hurtigruten’s seminars at their own pace. The program consists of 14 modules (each with a pretest, topical content, interactive activities and a module review) that will be released on a monthly basis at www.hurtigrutenacademy.com. Each module lasts 15-60 minutes and is designed to educate agents on Hurtigruten’s overall brand experience, guest demographics, ships, destinations, itineraries, amenities, sales tips and best practices.
Agents successfully competing the course will become Certified Hurtigruten Specialists and earn CEUs from the Travel Institute, as well as up to 15 credits from CLIA.
To access the modules, agents must register at www.hurtigrutenacademy.com.
