Visit Central Florida Launches Specialist Academy

Visit Central Florida (Polk County, FL) is inviting travel advisors and tour operators to sign up for its free Visit Central Florida Travel Specialist Academy. Once completed, advisors and tour operators will receive a Visit Central Florida Specialist Certificate, exclusive discounts and upgraded benefits within the destination.

Before advisors and tour operators start the training program, they are invited to watch a virtual familiarization video where travel industry sales representative Joni Allen takes them on a 20-minute whistle stop tour of what’s known as “Florida’s Sweetest Spot.”

Home to LEGOLAND Florida Resort, the area offers many undiscovered attractions and experiences like the Westgate River Ranch Resort and Rodeo, the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi that offers a host of accommodation options including luxe tepees and glamping tents, as well as a Saturday night championship rodeo.

Advisors will get to see Bok Tower Gardens, one of the oldest attractions in Florida, Safari Wilderness Ranch, and others unique experiences like u-pick citrus farms where visitors can join a tour and pick their own fruit.

The video aims to make advisors feel like they are actually there and is a great way to familiarize themselves with the region before moving on to the 40-minute training program also delivered by Allen. The course covers the best the region has to offer including accommodations. The area boasts more than 7,000 vacation rental homes, as well as outdoor adventures, best places to eat like a local, lake life, state, city and county parks, historic homes, arts and culture, sports, and entertainment.
