Global Travel Collection Redesigns Online Education Platform
Learning Library gives employees, travel advisors the flexibility to take courses whenever fits their schedule
NEW YORK (May 19, 2022) – Global Travel Collection, the world’s largest collection of travel industry agents and agencies serving luxury leisure, VIP corporate and entertainment travel needs, has relaunched the Learning Library, an online education platform that makes it easy for employees and independent contractor travel advisors to keep their skills sharp and stand out among competitors in the travel industry.
We want to make it as convenient as possible for our employees and travel advisors to increase their knowledge and skills
-Angie Licea, President of the Global Travel Collection
The Learning Library was redesigned in response to a desire by travel advisors to take more control of their professional growth. With this enhanced system, employees and advisors can learn at their own pace, accessing materials from any location, at any time and from any electronic device. And they can put what they’ve learned into practice immediately.
“We want to make it as convenient as possible for our employees and travel advisors to increase their knowledge and skills,” said Angie Licea, President of the Global Travel Collection. “Our job is to provide travel advisors with the support they need to operate and grow their businesses. The Learning Library plays a key role in that mission by giving advisors access to information that will help them be successful and keep up with our constantly changing industry. Most importantly, they can take advantage of this training whenever it fits their schedule.”
The Learning Library features a fresh new look and a dashboard that’s easy to navigate. Employees and advisors can access the platform right from the home page on the company intranet. Once signed in, users will find a menu of suggested courses customized to employees and ICs alike.
So far, the updated library contains nearly 300 courses and documents, and more are being added each week. Training is available in different forms to accommodate varied learning styles, including webinars and interactive e-Learnings.
Topics include Sabre, ClientBase, Advisor Portal, Supplier Partner webinars, and Fast Track Product Training. The Learning Library also has Employee Orientation information (for new and existing employees), Performance Management for employees and managers, and Service Fee training for independent contractors. Users will also find documents like tip sheets and manuals.
For example, recent Featured Courses included webinars on hotel and cruise line partners, as well as deep dives into professional service fees and creating and updating a traveler profile with Sabre.
