Overview

If your horizons are wide and you want the sky to be the limit, then joining the booming travel industry could be the perfect career option for you. Our tourism qualifications provide learners with the expertise and knowledge to work for a travel organisation or for their own business, whether you want to be on the front line of travel, or to make the jump into a senior or management position.

CIT’s training facilities include a live travel agency, allowing participants to train using industry-standard computerised reservation systems and to gain experience in an environment that is transferrable to an agency, airline or wholesale travel setting.

Beyond Certificate III level, CIT’s tourism courses place an emphasis on sound business and managerial techniques, designed to help you rise through the industry by coordinating product development activities, marketing products and leading teams. Learners develop a competitive edge within the industry, judging global tourism trends and managing the business of a travel agency accordingly.
