V-com Makes House Calls for Training

Vacation.com has launched a new service for travel agents who need training but are time-challenged: personal trainers who make office calls. Vacation.com Personal Trainers offer comprehensive, one-on-one agent training, as well as group training for entire sales teams. "While our in-house Vacation.com Learning Center has been a huge success, many agency owners have e-mailed me to express how much they would like to extend the educational offering to their entire sales staff," said Lauraday Kelley, vice president, education and training, Vacation.com. "Since having an entire staff travel to Vacation.com headquarters is not convenient or realistic for most agencies, we are pleased to be able to bring the training directly to them with our Vacation.com education and training professionals." Courses run from introductory AgentNet lessons to advanced e-marketing solutions. Vacation.com can also customize a program to achieve individual agency's goals. Session prices vary depending on distance of travel and the structure and content of the training. E-mail [email protected].
