The Modern Travel Agency

Fora Travel

    We’re all about leveling up: diving deeper, probing further, always refining. Earlier this fall, we launched our community-first training curriculum, where Fora Advisors learn the ins and outs of the travel industry and make their first booking. And for those who are ready to take their business a step further, that's where our advanced training curriculum comes in.

    Our Advanced certification curriculum is designed to help advisors level up their business as a travel advisor. With the advanced training, participants will still benefit from Fora's hands-on approach, but delve into more advanced bookings, learn the nitty gritty of the industry and further refine their travel expertise.

    Read on for more on Fora's new Advanced certification curriculum. And, if you're interested in joining us, take the first steps to becoming a Fora Advisor today. Or, learn how to become a travel agent.

    What does the advanced curriculum look like? 

    Our team curated this in-depth, hands-on model for advisors looking to make travel advising a significant business endeavor or full-time career. Advisors partake in live, interactive workshops led by our go-to industry experts, during which they'll build a robust portfolio that highlights their command of all things travel-related. 

    Advisors will dig into brand marketing, using technology to leverage their businesses and build lasting relationships with suppliers. They'll tailor comprehensive trips (even those to unfamiliar destinations) and work to create a sustainable and fulfilling business model. Along the way, advisors will have the hands-on support from Fora HQ at every step.

    Who is the advanced curriculum for?

    Fora's advanced travel agent training is designed specifically for advisors wanting to take their business to the next level. To register, advisors need to have met milestone-based criteria, including completing a set number of bookings as well as demonstrating proficiency in various destinations. This training also requires a time commitment and active involvement within the larger Fora community of advisors. Over the training period, we recommend setting aside time for both live trainings and self-paced, asynchronous work. 

    What will I get after completing the advanced curriculum?

    In addition to a more comprehensive and fine-tuned understanding of the travel industry, advisors who successfully complete the training and who pass the Advanced travel agent certification assessment will receive a special designation on their Fora profile as well as in our community app, Forum. They'll also receive exclusive shareable assets for marketing and social media and will complete a finished portfolio, all of which will further elevate their brand.
