Fred. Olsen Launches Online Agent Training

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines has teamed up with Online Travel Training to create an exciting new web-based training tool for agents. The new training program can be taken in the agent’s own time and comprises five modules, which are fun, easy to navigate and suitable for both those who are new to the industry, as well as established cruise experts.

Agents simply need to log on to and the site will take them through the five key modules: Why Cruise; The Fred. Olsen Difference; Our Fleet; Life Onboard and Ashore and Fred. Facts. Each module ends in 10 multiple choice questions and agents need a score of 90 percent to pass. Those who are successful will receive an e-certificate as proof of their achievement.

Lol Nichols, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ general sales manager, says, “It is important that at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines we do all we can to provide our travel agent partners with the right tools and training to enable them to fully understand our product and to be able to inform customers about the Fred. Olsen cruise experience. We are therefore very proud to be launching this new agent training resource. We all know how busy agents are these days, with so many calls on their time, and our new online training has been tailored specifically with busy agents in mind, as they can fit it into their day as and when they please, and it is both fun and informative.”
