In celebration of its 40th Anniversary, the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) is offering an accelerated Certified Travel Counsellor (CTC) accreditation program as part of a onetime, limited opportunity for experienced agents.

ACTA is accepting enrollment for the accelerated program from Sept. 15 to Dec. 1, 2017. This accelerated program requires three simple steps, including enrolment, providing verification of ten or more years of experience, and submitting client and industry references.

The CTC certification has been the professional designation of the Canadian travel industry for over 50 years.

"Attaining and promoting your Certified Travel Counsellor (CTC) professional designation shows your existing clients and potential future clients that you have the proven skills, experience and commitment to excellence," said Wendy Paradis, ACTA President.

Dianne Jackson, CTC and Director of Travel and Retail Product for CAA South Central Ontario noted, "the CTC designation lets our clients know they are working with professionals in their field. We have invested in our education and take pride in what we do; it gives our clients peace of mind knowing they are working with a Certified Travel Counsellor."

ACTA is offering a live webinar on Oct. 4, 2017 at 1:00pm EST, to present details of the accelerated program.
