Hopper has launched a travel agent training course, Bunny Bootcamp, aimed at those with little to no travel industry experience.
The course, Hopper said, was designed to fill a gap in the marketplace: New agents are needed as travel rebounds, but they also need technical knowledge.

Bunny Bootcamp is a self-guided, online course, with experts available for questions and further guidance. It includes 160 hours of course material, quizzes, access to a Slack community, a Sabre GDS guided simulation and more.
Learning modules include things like an introduction to the industry, GDS overview, fares and ticketing and hotels. Graduates receive certificates of completion. The course costs $299.
"Particularly right now, people are evaluating their professional lives and considering a change," Jo Lai, Hopper's head of customer experience, said in a release. "We hope that this comprehensive training program can help individuals learn new skills and open doors to a career as a travel agent."
