Certificate III in Travel SIT30216
Study now; be ready later!
It is important to keep in mind that the current global crisis is a temporary setback with a limited time-frame and with this in mind it is actually a great time to study – especially 100% online.
Soon, the demand for travel agent services will be higher than ever and as life resumes normality you will be ready to apply for new travel jobs or to start your own home-based travel business.
Long-term focus will eventually pay off, hopefully much sooner than we think.
Tracy is one of our current students and she sums up the current situation:
"Seems ironic studying travel when countries are closing their borders and there are more planes on the ground than in the skies!
It will all turn around eventually though and when it does - we will be ready.”
Well said Tracy, you are 100% correct. Study now; be ready later!
