How up to date is the Home-Based Travel Agent Success Course?
One of the great advantages of providing the course in an electronic format is that I don’t have to wait months for the next edition to appear. If something changes in the industry, I can update the text and make it available immediately.
This is especially important for the Host Agency Directory. This is one segment of the travel distribution system that is in constant flux. So this module gets updated several times a year.
Of course, the printed version is a “moment in time,” but it is printed in very short print runs. That’s more costly, but it lets me update every month or two instead of every year or two as was the case when I was using printed textbooks.
Another major benefit of this course is that, once you are a student, you have lifetime access to the electronic version of the course including all future updates. And, of course, if you choose to get the print version you still get the electronic version, now and forever.
This is especially important, once again, for the Host Agency Directory. Since it is quite likely that you will deal with several host agencies over the course of your career, you can always download the latest version of the Directory when you are shopping for a new host.
Plus you can revisit the course whenever you wish, secure in the knowledge that the information you are reading reflects the current realities of this exciting profession.
So, the answer to the question, “How up to date is the Home-Based Travel Agent Success Course?” is . . . very!
And that will be true tomorrow and next month and next year.
