TORONTO — The Azores Specialist Program is now accessible to agents at Travelweek’s Learning Centre.
With this new online course agents can develop their knowledge of the Azores Islands, an increasingly popular European destination and very accessible to travellers via a five-hour flight from Toronto. The Azores Specialist Program covers everything from how to get there to how to get around, accommodation options, activities and attractions and more.
Agents will have three months to complete the Azores Specialist Program and will become eligible to win a seven-night Azores vacation with hotel and air.
Additionally, by completing this program agents will receive ACTA certification credits that can be used towards achieving CTM/CTC Travel Counsellor Certification.
“National Geographic ranks The Azores as the number two island for sustainable tourism in the world. And the Azores are gaining in recognition in all markets we work in including Canada,” says Marlene Rocha, Market Manager, Canada for the Azores Promotion Board. “And the demographic profile of the Canadian market matches well with what Azores has to offer.”
“There is so much upside from the Canadian market,” adds Ron MacEachen, Sales and Marketing representative for Canada. “Through this eLearning program and other initiatives we continue to work on our brand awareness and product knowledge with the travel trade in Canada.”
