Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, has launched Cruisitude Academy, a brand-new virtual learning tool for Cruise Planners travel advisors featuring more than 150 courses covering a range of topics at varying levels of expertise. Accessible via mobile device, desktop computer, and an iPad mobile app, the Cruisitude Academy learning platform provides home-based travel advisors with 24-hour access to 700 hours of customized learning experiences separated into 15-20 minute segments.

In addition to learning modules, Cruisitude Academy will feature live weekly webinars presented by the Cruise Planners home office team and travel industry partners that will be archived for later viewing. Cruise Planners’ business development coaches will also be able to view franchisees’ progress and make personalized course recommendations.

Cruise Planners also launched a new virtual associate training program in January, allowing franchise owners’ associates the ability to complete the onboarding and training process from home at a flexible pace. Since its recent debut, more than 70 associates have already successfully completed the program. For more information, visit
