I'm Officially a Certified Travel Agent!
Updated: Jul 11
Almost anyone can become a travel agent these days, but there are certifications that set us apart.
I am proud to one of the nine that passed my Certified Travel Agent test at Cruise World in Nov 2019.
Are you wondering why a Certified Travel Agent even matters?
Here is an article that explains the why it does.
In order to take the Certified Travel Agent (Associate) course from the Travel Institute you must have a minimum of 12 months experience in the industry. Working through the course was fun, but taking the test was not. I am not a huge fan of tests. I get nervous and have this fear that everything I know will escape me and I will not know what to write. Of course, I always do much better than I feel I am going to.
I Desire to ALWAYS be Learning and Improving
Is the learning over now that I am certified? Absolutely not. I will continue to study and stay up-to-date on resorts, wedding packages, marriage requirements per country, etc. The travel industry is constantly changing and especially post COVID-19 there have been many changes and more to come.
