Intrepid Launches New Agent Certification Program

Intrepid Travel has launched a new training program in North America to certify advisors as Intrepid Travel Specialists, which comes complete with certification and exclusive access to promotions, incentives and more.

In order to become a Specialist, advisors must complete five half-hour trainings that outline various components about Intrepid Travel as a business and brand, beyond the traditional trips it offers. Training topics include subjects such as responsible travel and why Intrepid became a B-Corp.

Each participant will receive a custom email signature, certificate and logo to add to their website.

As well, they’ll gain exclusive access to promotions and discounts for their clients that won’t otherwise be available, early access to public promotions, bonus commission offers only available to Specialists, and other incentives such as prizes and giveaways.

Shayna Zand, Head of Business Development in North America for Intrepid Travel, said: “With travel on the rebound, it’s more important than ever that people are aware of the impact their vacations have on the world and why choosing a responsible travel provider is essential.”

Zand continued: “Our goal with this new Specialist Program is to support our partners with expanded knowledge about Intrepid and what makes us a responsible business, so they can feel confident and comfortable when recommending our tours to their clients.”
