Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia has launched an expanded program of educational webinars for travel agent members, and for the first time will provide CLIA Accreditation Points as a reward for those who participate.
More than 30 different webinar topics will be covered throughout 2019, presented by individual CLIA Cruise Lines and CLIA Executive Partners under the banner “Tune In. Learn. Be Rewarded”.
This year’s new-look webinar series begins on 6 February and will run throughout 2019, giving agents an opportunity to develop their specialist knowledge with information on unique selling points, destinations, itineraries, ways to book and resources they can draw from.
Three CLIA Accreditation Points will be provided after completion of a short post-webinar quiz, allowing agents to accelerate their path to industry recognition and be rewarded for their engagement.
CLIA Australasia Managing Director Joel Katz said the 2019 webinar program had been improved and expanded to provide even more relevant content for busy agents.
“Last year more than 750 travel agents took part in our webinar series, which is an important part of the CLIA industry education program,” Katz said. “This year’s new-look series will have a new format and a stronger emphasis on detailed, need-to-know information, designed to give agents a selling advantage and boost their specialisation in cruise.”
Webinars will be available for registration by CLIA travel agent members from Wednesday 30 January. For a full calendar of webinars and more information, visit www.cruising.org.au.
