Agents are all over the Australian Federation of Travel Agents’ new learning program, according to CEO Darren Rudd.
The Micro Credentials Program, which was developed in partnership with Learning Vault, is now live and ready for those looking to upskill.
“The feedback so far from our AFTA/ATAS members is that our Micro Credentials Program is the perfect way to quickly and easily upskill and retrain and validate skills acquired on the job,” Rudd said.
The program allows agents to learn in short bursts across more than 60 key skill areas, with more modules on the way.
“Early winners with our AFTA/ATAS members include the Micro Credentials on ‘Workplace Operational Planning’, ‘Social Media’, ‘Building Your Project Plan’, ‘Coaching and Mentoring’, as well as for the two free options: ‘Breath in, Breath Out’ and ‘Working Remotely’,” Rudd said.
Each Micro Credential is aligned to a training unit within the nationally recognised Vocational Education and Training (VET) Qualification Framework.
You also get a shiny digital badge when you complete each module in case you’d like your skills to be more visible and verifiable.
Learning Vault has also slung AFTA members an 80 per cent discount so it only costs $19.99 per course. This is on top of 500 free places, some of which are still up for grabs.
