Tourism 100 Hours Certificate Course

Tourism course online. Tourism has become a major recreation pursuit, and commercial industry world wide. It is so significant today that some regions (even some countries) economies, are more heavily dependent upon tourism than anything else.

The tourism industry encompasses the provision of all those services used by people when travelling away from home. The reason for travel is most obviously "a holiday"; but may also be "business".

To forge a successful career in Tourism, you will need to:

  • Be excited about travel and tourism
  • Put your customers' needs first
  • Design positive lifetime experiences that people will remember
  • Be aware of cultural and religious considerations when proposing destinations
  • Know about booking reservations, travel insurance, plus transport such as car hire
  • Choose the package tour which best suits your customers' expectations
  • Have excellent customer service and office skills, including using the telephone and record keeping etc.

If you have the desire required to be successful in the travel industry, this course will help you to acquire the learning to put your passion for tourism into practice. Empower yourself to stand out from other job applicants at an interview, with a combination of demonstrating an infectious love for travel and the skills an employer is looking for in a new member of their team.

Tourism I includes a Special Project where you will plan an example trip, which will be invaluable as a tool to use during interviews, to help you convince an employer that you are the right person for the job.

The feedback was very good from my tutor, and allowed me to  build upon my assignments that were marked. The comments were very informative  and very useful. Well written course material."  Andrew W, Careers  Counselling, UK
