Luxury host travel agency Travel Edge Network (TEN) knows training and education are an integral part of your professional life, so the company recently launched the Edge Advantage program to help you no matter what your current level.
If you are new to the industry and looking to move from part-time to full-time and make a good living, the company’s 90-day mentorship program offers online and one on one training, tools and support to expedite that process.
“Although the industry offers various levels of training and education, we have really taken that commitment to the next level with our programs to help our advisors develop their skills to be more efficient, effective and equipped to deliver results for their clients,” said Michelle Leal, v.p. of member engagement for Travel Edge Network, in a press statement. “We know that with the return to travel, advisors are needed now more than ever and are working to keep up with the demand for the services of a professional travel advisor. As they may not have the ability or desire to take the typical two years to complete a training path, we have responded to their needs to be successful on an expedited timeline.”
A tenured advisor looking to move their business online might want to take a look at the Build Your Business program on website development. There are also live quarterly boot camp training programs with the hotel, air, insurance, cruise, tour and activities directors, during which advisors of all levels can ask questions and receive live demos and responses. There are also Limitless conferences featuring travel panels featuring high-performing advisors to speak on topics that are timely and relevant to the network.
Travel Edge Network has plans to continue to grow the Edge Advantage curriculum and a-la-carte course options in 2023 for its advisors and will also launch Specialist Certification programs later this year in cruise, hotel, and air with other specialist programming coming in 2023. The Edge Advantage program complements Knowledge Trips, a concept introduced in June 2022 with an inaugural trip for independent advisors to Rwanda. Future Knowledge trips are scheduled in October to Portugal, November to the British Virgin Islands and Kenya in Spring 2023.
