ARC and IATA have partnered to launch IATA's Travel and Tourism Diploma classes for travel professionals in the U.S.
There are three courses: Foundation in Travel and Tourism ($500), Travel and Tourism Consultant ($575) and Managing a Travel Business ($620). Each includes an online training program, an electronic textbook, and a 75-question exam that must be completed in 90 minutes.
ARC and IATA said the courses were created by industry experts.
"Our strong relationship with IATA over the years has provided organizations and travel professionals with valuable information to help them make business decisions and grow," said Lauri Reishus, ARC president and CEO. "I'm proud this new partnership will give current and aspiring U.S. travel professionals access to additional tools and resources to help further their careers."
IATA said more than 100,000 travel professionals around the world have taken its Travel and Tourism Diploma courses.
