Our vision is to provide skills development and training for the travel industry to create job opportunities and uplift industry standards.

Our unique offering is aimed at everyone working in travel retail, travel buyers and bookers within corporates and people hoping to launch a career in travel. We recognise the need for supporting our travel buyers in the market by providing knowledge and skills to ensure efficiency between TMC and Travel Buyer.

We provide practical training that is borne of real-world knowledge and not just a textbook and hope to instill a sense of lifelong learning. We teach skills, not information, enabling students to think and self-motivate in a fast-changing environment. As an independent training academy, our offering is workplace and industry relevant, aimed at solving the challenges faced by the travel industry. We aspire to produce excellent content that evolves at the same pace as the industry.

The Travel Training Academy is accredited with CATHSETA, IATA, DTS and affiliated to ASATA. Certificates and diplomas will be issued upon completion of all our courses.

We provide a blended learning programme which includes:

Onsite Training

We offer face to face training with a real-world environment. We have scheduled courses at 2 onsite venues in Johannesburg and will soon be available country wide. Although in a classroom environment, our methods are anything but traditional. Our emphasis is on practical learning combined with the theory, in a creative, stimulating and interactive style to be applied in the workplace with ease.

Offsite Training

Targeted at corporates and larger groups, we offer customised in-house training, tailor–made for specific needs and presented at a time and venue suitable to our clients’ requirements. All our onsite classroom courses are available to corporates as well as any bespoke training needs that may be required.


Distance Learning

Our strategic partnership with IATA allows us to offer Internationally recognised IATA diplomas, through our workshops which will assist learners in completing the necessary modules effectively. The Travel Training Academy will serve as your your direct link to facilitate the registration process and any other support.

Travel Industry Work Readiness Programme

We have developed our own work readiness programme to assist learners who would like to follow a career path in the travel industry but don’t necessarily have the skills to do so. Our programme is designed for a 2 month period to cover all sectors in the industry including Retail Travel, Wholesale Travel, Visitor Information, Tour Operators, Cruising, Transportation, Events and Services. We are launching with the Travel Agency programme and the rest will follow soon.

Online Learning / E-Learning

Our technologically enhanced online learning platform offers courses and training to be completed at your convenience and own pace. Offering part-time flexibility, but at the same time enabling a structured, highly supportive environment, we are committed to delivering an interactive and enjoyable learning experience. We provide training in the form of video material, training courses and assessments with dedicated course coordinators.


Our webinars will be spread throughout the year for live, on-demand training on current trends and challenges facing the industry.
