               to Long-lasting Careers

Did you know that after just three semesters of Centennial College’s Tourism
and Travel courses you may be hired by respected and well known companies
such as: Marlin Travel, Sears Travel, Thomas Cook Group, Carlson Wagonlit, Air
Transat/Nolitours, Goway, Sunwing, Travel Corporation and Kensington Tours?
That’s because not only does this reliable training result in an Ontario College
Diploma, the Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellors (CITC) also endorses it.
As such, CITC knowledge exam and Travel Industry Council of Ontario (TICO)
minimum standards exam are included as part of it. Additionally, CITC student
membership and annual Students in Travel conference are included.

The Tourism and Travel courses within this offering are focused on ensuring that
students obtain an in-depth knowledge of airline tariffs and ticketing,
accommodation and ground transportation and the cruise industry. This travel
and tourism program, also offers students a solid grounding in areas such as
culture and heritage training, passport and visa requirements, travel security,
customer sales and service, and much more. Specific tourism and travel courses
include: World Geography for Tourism, Introduction to Hospitality Accounting,
Selling Cruises, Industry Automation – Apollo, Introduction to Computing, Sales
& Marketing for Travel Industry, Airline Automation – Sabre, Travel Agency
Operations and more. Another highlight of the travel and tourism program is
that cruise line training includes the Cruise Line International Association
(CLIA) two and a half-day “training fest” conducted by CLIA-Trainers.

In order to apply what they have learned in their Tourism and Travel
courses, students also participate in a three-days-a-week internship.
Conducted in the third and final semester of the program, it is a chance for
students to apply skills learned in-class, interact with professionals and
network. In addition, the program offers its students an international trip that
provides practical exposure to all aspects of travel.

Should students who complete the Tourism and Travel courses want to pursue
further education, Centennial College makes it easy for them through
articulated programs with selected universities, institutes and professional
associations. These partnerships allow graduates to apply academic credit
towards further study. The partner of the Tourism and Travel program is
University of New Brunswick.
