Hey agents! Check out Rocky Mountaineer’s exciting new training platform

Do you love learning new things? Becoming an expert in your field? Well, we’ve got just the thing.

Rocky Mountaineer has just launched their brand new agent training platform, TRACKS, and boy is it exciting.

Basically, it’s a five-module course that will make you into a Rocky Mountaineer expert in almost no time at all, helping you sell and be more knowledgeable for your clients. Sounds pretty damn good to us!

The course explores Rocky Mountaineer’s service levels, routes and seasons, packages and more – giving you an unbeatable in-depth knowledge.

Upon completion of the course, you’ll also score a certificate honouring your brand new title as a Rocky Mountaineer Specialist.

Oh, and you’ll also get an e-logo to display proudly on your website, social media pages and email signature.

Upon becoming a specialist, not only will customers be flocking to book with you, but you’ll also get access to Rocky Mountaineer’s Travel Agent Discount program, as well as opportunities to join one of their Learning Journeys. Plus, receive exclusive opportunities for ongoing training, webinars, and insider sales tips.

Learning Journeys equal famils, BTW. Sign us up!

The modules in the course include:

  • The history of Rocky Mountaineer
  • The jaw-dropping route options and incredible destinations
  • GoldLeaf and SilverLeaf Service, the two classes of service
  • Key tools and resources to help you grow your business with Rocky Mountaineer

Plus, all graduates before December 31, 2018, will be entered into a draw for two GoldLeaf Service rail seats!

The winner will enjoy hot gourmet breakfast and lunches, plus morning pastries and afternoon wine and cheese, as well as all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and delish snacks. You’ll also get to sit in a custom-designed bi-level dome coach with meal service below and seating up top – and there’s even an exclusive outdoor viewing platform. We dare you to find a better way to see Canda’s beautiful landscape.
