The Travel Institute (TTI) is launching a new collaboration with Royal Caribbean International to support travel agents’ continued education.
Together, TTI and Royal Caribbean have committed a total of $7,500 toward Certified Travel Associate (CTA) certifications for master’s degree graduates of Royal Caribbean University, the cruise line’s online travel professional learning platform. Through The Travel Institute, the contribution will cover more than 50 percent of the cost of the CTA curriculum for 40 qualifying travel partners. Professionals who have completed the final segment of Royal Caribbean University’s recently enhanced, 3-track curriculum can apply for the financial assistance by directly registering for the CTA program on The Travel Institute’s website. Plus, if travel partners are members of The Travel Institute, they will also earn an additional 10 percent toward their certification.
“Brand-specific training coupled with ‘job-readiness’ certification through The Travel Institute is a winning formula for success,” said TTI training director Guida Botelho in press materials. “All of our certifications have been totally overhauled to reflect content that is based on practical, real-work scenarios. We’re excited about presenting this never-before-seen benefit with Royal Caribbean, and we applaud them for recognizing their dedicated travel professionals with such a rewarding opportunity!”
