Centre of Learning now Includes Kakadu

Tourism NT’s successful online trade training program has been extended to include an interactive Kakadu and Arnhem Land module, assisting travel agents to convert interest in the NT to actual sales.

NT Destination & Partnership Marketing Manager Mark Crummy said the online training ceNTre first launched a Red Centre module in March that has already seen solid take up by travel agents.

“The new Kakadu and Arnhem Land training module increases travel agent knowledge about this World Heritage-listed destination, so they are able to offer their customers a great value destination, that also delivers a high yield sale,” Mr Crummy said.

“In today’s uncertain economic climate Australian travellers are more interested in staying closer to home and are looking for holidays that offer greater value for money in addition to an emotional return.

“The training program taps into this shifting consumer sentiment by increasing travel agent knowledge of the key life-changing experiences in the NT, in addition to distance, climate and access information.

“Industry feedback has already been extremely positive confirming that this program enables agents to better understand the destination and sell NT holidays with more confidence,” he said.

Course participants also receive rewards including eligibility to attend Tourism NT famils and priority invitations to Tourism NT trade events.

A new Darwin Module is currently under development and scheduled to launch in August.
