Overview of Program: A self-training program designed to provide comprehensive education on small ship cruising on all Captain Cook Cruises products. Consisting of five wide-ranging modules (8 including sub-modules), the course provides agents with a thorough understanding of the concept of small ship cruising. It is estimated that each module should take no more than about 15 minutes. The answers for each module question can be answered using information in the downloadable document, module content online, brochures and the website content in general. In order to qualify as an accredited specialist you must complete the 84-page workbook and five-part quiz, which can be ordered from the company or accessed through the company’s Web site.
Eligibility Requirements: Available to all Travel Agents worldwide, Cruise Specialists, Wholesale & Inbound front line selling staff, Travel Industry students & most Travel Industry professionals.
Benefits: Certificate of Accreditation and a free gift; Increased confidence in selling Small Ship Cruises; Special industry fares on all Captain Cook Cruises; Opportunity for marketing dollars to stimulate local marketing initiatives – only accredited agents proposals will be considered; Regular product updates and specials from Captain Cook Cruises. Last year, agents who completed the program received a free four-day cruise, and Captain Cook said it is working on a similar incentive for this year.
