Recommend’s destination specialists are among the most knowledgable in the industry.
Recommend’s education courses are built for impact. Recommend’s education center offers travel agents destination-specific courses that dive deeply into what makes each destination special. For over 44 years, Recommend has reported on destination experiences available around the globe, and its the same world-traveled editors who develop and write each destination course. Courses are built in association with (and approved by) the tourism board of the specific destination covered. And future courses will further a specialist’s knowledge through niche-speciality courses (destination weddings, adventure, family travel and more).
A Recommend-certified destination specialist is knowledge-tested.
To become certified, a travel agent must pass a test on the course that has been developed by Recommend, approved by the tourism board of the specific destination and certified by both The Travel Institute and the Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors. Travel agents are eligible to receive professional continuing education credits for completing Recommend’s education courses.
