Vacation.com's Agent Training Program Reports Record Participation


Vacation.com reports that in 2013, its agency training programs hit record-braking participation numbers. The agency group said that during 2013, 14,900 training touch points were made as its members actively joined in a plethora of no cost Vacation.com programs such as on-demand webinars, virtual classes and in-person events.

Christine James, vice-president Canada for Vacation.com, said: “Vacation.com continues to keep members inspired while increasing their knowledge base through ongoing educational sessions and our monthly Canada-wide mixers. It’s through these exceptional educational events that our members are able to learn from Vacation.com leadership, our supplier partners and from each other. Vacation.com members are always looking for more ways to increase their bottom line and grow.”

She pointed out that: “Throughout 2014, Vacation.com will offer its members a selection of new, sophisticated webinars including ‘Corporate Travel Kit’ scheduled for Feb. 19 — aimed at owners and managers looking to expand into corporate travel — which will provide sample business plans, RFPs and more. On Feb. 26, Vacation.com is offering “Why Use CruisePRO?” This training session will demonstrate how CruisePRO can save time, keep members on track with their cruise deposits, notifications and final payments, and how to more efficiently handle reporting.”

A notable enhancement to some of Vacation.com’s most popular webinars will be the addition of a second trainer. The second trainer will be able to quickly respond to the questions coming from the GoToMeeting questions box while the other trainer continues teaching.
