Travelling has always been a key aspect of Australian culture. From gap years to long weekend hops across the Tasman to visit our neighbour New Zealand, Australians have never been afraid to book in time off and get away for a bit. Landing a travel agent job can not only give you the power to let people live their holiday dreams; it can also provide the keys to making a living while living abroad. These tourism and travel courses set out an itinerary for obtaining the skills, knowledge and experience to enter the sector and achieve results straight away, while developing a professional understanding of travel, tourism and hospitality in Australia and around the world.
While understanding routes, layovers and other travel details is important, these accredited travel agent courses expose you to the vital administrative duties that can help you land a travel agent job at home or abroad. This includes key skills surrounding customer service, business and personnel management, and finances. With this knowledge you can look for travel agent jobs such as travel agency manager, travel consultant or travel agent. These roles can have an average weekly salary of $1,150-$1,250 depending on where you work. As an added perk, much of what you learn in these classes applies to travel agent jobs around the world, freeing you up to move overseas.
Take off on a great career path with the help of these nationally accredited travel agent courses.
