At last week’s cruise3stixy conference, Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) announced eight new training and professional development e-learning courses for agents.
The e-learning courses, which will be available as of April 29, 2015, will focus on everything from business, niche, and geography, to sales, and professional development, and are designed to complement CLIA’s existing e-learning offerings. The new Intro to Cruising series is available to CLIA’s Diamond Travel Agency Members for free as part of their membership, and for all other members it’s $25 per course. The initial series includes four course offerings, with additional courses launching later this year, including Cruising 101; Cruising 201; Power Selling Skills; and Successful Qualifying. Additional courses are available for $25 per course including What Have You Done for PR Lately?; Eat, Drink, and Cruise; Sell Your Passion; and Put the Person Back into Selling. Seven additional online courses will be available between May and July. For more information, call (885) 444-2542 or visit cruising.org/training-certification.
