WTM Africa, in partnership with the Association of Southern African Travel Agents (ASATA), have launched the ASATA Travel Agents’ Academy, which will be hosted at #WTMA20 in Cape Town.
The ASATA Travel Agents’ Academy will be held in the Destination Theatre on 8 April, the final day of the African continent’s largest B2B travel and tourism trade show.
The ASATA Travel Agents’ Academy has been structured to support the ASATA Professional Programme (APP).
The APP is an online system that recognises travel agents’ expertise, qualifications and practical skills to achieve professional recognition by ASATA and ultimately, a professional designation as either a Travel Practitioner or Travel Advisor.
ASATA is the only local travel industry body to be accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as a professional body. As such, it is the only association that can award a SAQA-accredited designation to travel consultants.
