Vacation.com is introducing The Travel Agent Training program, available via www.agentnet.com/aac for member agents. The program is a valuable success-building tool designed for all retailers, ranging from beginners to professionals, providing in-depth coverage of essential sales, marketing and communication skills, Vacation.com says.
“Travel agents require a comprehensive knowledge of products and destinations in order to meet the diverse requirements of their clients,” said Steve Tracas, president and CEO, Vacation.com. “Incorporating The Travel Agent Training program will strengthen essential skills and result in well-informed, professional travel agents.”
Vacation.com is offering exclusive pricing of $299 plus shipping and handling for the Travel Agent Training course. “We are so confident in this program that we are offering a 30-day refund to any member that is not completely satisfied,” noted Tracas.
The program combines traditional coursework and e-learning solutions to achieve phenomenal results. Each agent is provided with online access to the unique Advanced Learning Platform where they are free to work at their own pace, download and print supporting materials, receive answers to workbook questions and complete chapter tests.
The online program is supported with a 444-page textbook and supplemental workbook. Each chapter features an “On the Spot” real-life scenario to sharpen critical thinking skills and prepare agents to handle any client’s travel dilemma. Upon completion of the course, agents will receive a certificate from Vacation.com.
“This is an exceptional value for our members,” said Geoff Stewart, manager of training and member development at Vacation.com. “We pride ourselves in our training programs whether at the annual conference; regional offerings; via the Mobile Training Unit; or during Webinars. This program certainly compliments these efforts and allows the user to self-administer and self-pace their learning.”
