The Association of Canadian Travel Agents is pleased to be offering specialist programs for Canadian travel counsellors in conjunction with The Travel Institute.

With the world to sell, many counsellors choose to specialize in a part of the world that they enjoy, or that their customers gravitate towards. Our Destination Specialist programs span the globe providing travel cousellors with essential knowledge to understand the destination as well as help create the kinds of experiences their customers expect.

The courses focus on geography, culture, essential sites and attractions, travel tips, and sample itineraries that will help counsellors create memorable trips for their clients. The courses provide information to enhance the traveler's appreciation of what they will be seeing, tasting, experiencing, and even help guide them on what they may choose to bring back for souvenirs.

Our destination specialist courses include Alaska, Caribbean, European Culture and Heritage, France, Hawaii, India, Mexico, North America, Northern and Central Europe, Southern Europe, Spain and St. Lucia.

Counselors that choose to specialize in a type of travel that they either enjoy or are passionate about will be interested in the new Lifestyle Specialist (LS) programs. They encompass some of the most popular types of travel and can help counsellors grow their business. Our courses focus on the niche itself, the kinds of travelers attracted to that type of travel, many of the destinations that cater to those travelers, and action plans to start marketing a growing specialty travel business.

Lifestyle Specialist courses include Accessible Travel, Adventure Travel, Gay and Lesbian Travel, Golf Travel, Honeymoons and Destination Weddings, Luxury Travel, Skiing, Spa Travel, Sustainable Travel and Villas.

The cost for taking any of these courses is $45.00 for CTC/CTM (in good standing) and $55.00 for non members. To sign up simply click on the following link to register for the courses.
