REMINDER: Just three weeks left to complete Fukuoka’s agent training program

Fukuoka Prefecture Tourist Association is reminding agents that there are only three weeks left to complete its online training program and be in with the chance to win the second round of prizes.

The course is targeted at local agents to give them insider knowledge and information on Fukuoka’s key selling points, and covers the four main regions of Fukuoka prefecture: Fukuoka, including Fukuoka City, and the areas of Chikuho, Kitakyushu and Chikugo.

Broken up into two modules, agents will discover tips on getting to Fukuoka, exploring the regions, the spectacular nature and outdoor activities, the rich culture and history, the buzzing culinary scene, and the festivals and ancient crafts throughout the prefecture.

Fukuoka has also unveiled the first three prize winners, with three of the $100 vouchers going to: Nicole Bosworth (Flight Centre Queanbeyan), Tanya Woo (TravelManagers) and Natalie Blackmore (Helloworld Travel Strathpine).

To go in the running for the next three prizes, agents must register and complete the course by 31 March 2021. The next three winners will be drawn at the end of the month.

Agents interested in completing the program can register here.
