Online registration is now open for Sandals Resorts’ Canadian series of Certified Sandals Specialist workshops which take place between May and September.
With workshops in over 40 cities from St. John’s, Nfld., to Surrey, BC, Sandals invites agents to “take the keys” and lock in more bookings than ever before.
During the fast-paced, concise sessions, agents will receive key product updates, key selling strategies, key tips and more key information they need to sell Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts. The workshops also fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirement for agents already holding CSS status.
The majority of workshops are scheduled in the morning (7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) however in select cities, afternoon (1 p.m. – 5 p.m.) and evening (5 p.m. – 9 p.m.) sessions are available. In Quebec, workshops are conducted in both English and French.
In addition, the Sandals workshops are ACTA approved. Each travel agent or manager who completes a workshop receives 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation.
Space is limited and agents are encouraged to register early. A non-refundable fee of $40 is required at time of registration. All participants will receive a 2019 workbook manual (which serves as an excellent resource guide), a 2019 CSS certificate (to show off and post on social media) as well as a supply of the newest collateral materials.
Agents can register online at https://www.uvisandals.ca and contact their local business development manager or inside sales at 1-800-545-8283 or 416-223-0028 for additional information.
