GET YOUR CTA & CTC NOW SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE SOON
The SoCal ASTA Chapter Board of Directors voted unanimously to support education and promote professionalism by awarding full scholarships to active members who wish to earn their certified designation from The Travel Institute for CTA, CTC or CTIE. Some restrictions apply and there is a limited number available.
Now is the time to get your industry recognized credentials. You’re good at what you do, but do potential customers know it? Do suppliers know it? Do your peers know it when you are at industry events?
The CTA, CTC, and CTIE programs help passionate career-minded people learn how to become better businessmen and women and advance the value and understanding of a true travel professional. It is more than placing letters after your name. Becoming certified by The Travel Institute makes a statement about who you are and the commitment you have made to your career.
Customers like dealing with an industry recognized professional, and your certification will let them know you are serious about what you do.
