There’s strong demand out there among Travel Advisors wanting to elevate their skills & raise their professionalism, according to the sign-up rate for MTA Travel’s new accreditation program.

MTA Travel says the response rate to its recently launched inhouse program has been great, with some 80 Advisors signing up within the first few weeks.

Chief Executive, Don Beattie, believes the positive reaction emphasises a strong interest among Advisors to gain new knowledge and set a new bench mark in travel expertise.


“We are delighted with the response to date given the commitment in time and effort required to achieve this accreditation.”

For those who missed the launch, MTA Professional Plus is an intensive accreditation program that goes beyond equipping consultants with the ability to sell. It runs over three tiers, each of which includes learning modules on social media, corporate, cruise, air, land product, luxury, marketing, business and professional development.


MTA CEO Don Beattie says the program will elevate Agents.

The program is self-paced, allowing consultants to complete it in their own time, however, is estimated to take up to a year to complete. Upon completing the accreditation, Travel Advisors will receive an ‘MTA Certified Travel Professional’ certificate.
