Uniworld is adding a brand new training course to its travel advisor training program that highlights what’s new in 2020 for its two river cruise brands, Uniworld and U River Cruises.

The course, which Uniworld is calling “Uniworld & U – New for 2020,” will give advisors updates on Uniworld including the four new Uniworld Super Ships and its new enhanced itinerary and pre-cruise extension; and Updates on its U River Cruises brand, including new itineraries and a new guide on how to sell the sailings.

All advisors who finish Uniworld’s three courses—Uniworld University, U University, and Uniworld & U – New for 2020—will receive discounted Uniworld rates up to 60% off, a special email badge, and an invitation to join Uniworld’s specialist directory on both its U.S. and Canadian websites.

“Our travel advisor partners are such an imperative part of our business, and we want to ensure that we provide them with the tools they need to confidently sell Uniworld and U to their clients as we continue to elevate our brands,” Uniworld CEO and President Ellen Bettridge said.

All of Uniworld’s courses, including others form its sister brands within the TTC, can be accessed on the TTC’s Agent Academy educational platform, Litmos, which offers both a desktop and mobile version.
