Switzerland is celebrating the launch of its new e-learning tool for consultants by giving Travel Agents the chance to WIN a spot on a famil or receive gift cards and cheese hampers.

Recently launched, the ‘Switzerland Travel Academy’ is designed to equip Travel Agents with the information they need to sell tours of the country as well as encouraging them to become Australia’s certified Switzerland experts.

Developed based on an intelligent, open-source concept, the platform with its didactic, modular, customisable and interactive design officially replaces the previous e-learning platform.


Agents will find that the new tool is much more engaging and user-friendly with its content of shorter text segments and series of videos and images.

Designed for mobiles, desktops and tablets, agents can conveniently log on to complete their modules from anywhere and at any time.

There are only five modules to complete where each module ends with a practice test:  ‘Welcome to Switzerland’; ‘Basic and practical knowledge; Hot to travel to and within Switzerland; Switzerland in 3, 5, or 10 days; and News from Switzerland.

In order to receive a certificate of graduation, all five modules and final test must be completed with flying colours by 15 July. Agents have three attempts to score a minimum of 80 percent on the final exam to qualify to win one of 10 spots on the September famil to Switzerland.
