The first two of the 125 MTA – Mobile Travel Agents Advisors currently participating in the ground breaking ‘MTA Professional Plus’ inhouse online accreditation scheme have now completed the self-paced program.
The two Advisors, Sarah Fenton (pictured with MTA CEO, Don Beattie) and Julia Campbell, took just five months to complete the program which, launched in late October, has been designed to help further educate and support MTA Advisors in their day to day business and, overall, enhance their standing as travel industry professionals.
Developed by MTA in-house training manager, Kirsty Tate, ‘MTA Professional Plus’ comprises nine core pathways and two optional pathways.
These focus on social media, corporate, cruise, air, land product, luxury, marketing, business and professional development.
“Having completed ‘MTA Professional Plus’ both Sarah and Julia can now take great pride in marketing themselves as MTA Certified Travel Professionals, secure in the knowledge they will be regarded and respected as some of the best travel professionals in the industry.
