We are proud to offer three unique courses that have been developed to provide any Travel and Tourism related degree or BTEC student with a work related qualification that today’s travel industry employers recognise and are actively seeking.

We have designed the following modularised courses which run for 12/13 weeks (2 hours per week) and all courses use the Live Amadeus GDS:  

How would this process work?

The above courses can be trained by:
  • Our experienced ’Plane Training trainers at a cost of £60 per hour plus expenses
  • Your own Lecturers
If the latter option is preferable, your Lecturers will be trained via our ‘Train the Trainer’ workshops. Lecturers will be required to pass an exam in order to deliver the courses (95% pass mark) and their performance will be monitored. Trainer workshop courses will be run every quarter and more intensively during the last quarter to be prepared for the new academic year.
