ACTA supports continuing education and believes it is an integral component to the travel professional's development. ACTA recently integrated an educational division to our membership, Formerly CITC (Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors).
The educational division of ACTA will continue to endorse community colleges, private vocational schools and correspondence programs that offer full-time and distance learning programs to train for the occupation of travel counsellor. The endorsement indicates that your educational program is meeting or exceeding the minimum requirements for entering the travel industry as a travel counsellor.
The criteria for endorsement includes:
- Length of time the program has been offered
- How graduates are performing in the workplace
- Course curriculum
- Instructor qualifications
- How students perform on the Knowledge Exam
