10-Week Travel & Customer Relations Program
Have you always wanted to get paid to travel, but weren’t sure how?
Our Travel and Customer Relations Program is designed to give students a thorough grasp of how the travel industry works and its history, and to expose them to all aspects of the travel industry. While it is possible to get a job without any prior exposure or experience, competition is fierce in the travel industry – with each flight attendant job posting getting hundreds, or thousands, of applications. Enrolling in training to build a solid foundation shows you’re committed and makes you more attractive to future employers.
What Students Learn
During our 10-week program, you’ll get hands-on experience in:
- Flight attendant emergency and safety procedures
- Cruise ship steward position training based on latest industry standards
- Sabre- a travel industry computer program used globally by airlines, airports, and travel agencies
Customer care is the foundation for any career in the tourism industry. Providing exceptional service helps build relationships that turn into a loyal customer base. Through hands-on and role-playing exercises, we prepare our students for real-life travel customer situations.
We want our students to succeed, and thrive, in their travel careers. As part of our core training, students will learn the travel industry’s professional image standards so they’re always putting their best foot forward.
Students also learn important job search and networking skills to help them land their dream job, and continue to move up the ladder as their career progresses.
What are my career options after graduation?
Although there are many tourism career options available to our students, our program covers four core areas in-depth: flight attendant, cruise ship staff, travel agent, and customer service. Click on the images below to learn more.

4-Week Travel Agency & Reservations Systems Program
Working in a travel agency combines the stability of an office job with the perks that come with being in the travel industry – like familiarization (fam) trips and a flexible work schedule. In fact, many travel agents choose to operate from a home-based office.
Our focused travel agent certification program teaches students:
- A deep understanding of airline and travel concepts;
- Active listening and customer service skills to facilitate planning client trips;
- In-depth knowledge of the SABRE booking system; and
- Key communication skills which are essential for communicating travel knowledge to clients.
