Are you interested in joining the tourism industry (identified as a super growth area) and interested in learning from industry professionals with years of experience? We welcome you to enrol in our tourism course. You can enrol as a trainee with your own workplace employment or non trainee which will include work placement.
Tourism is booming in Australia. Increasing prosperity among Asian markets, better aviation access and a competitive exchange rate are all factors driving growth in overseas visitors.
This course gives you the hands on skills needed to work in the growing tourism industry. You'll be exposed to a range of tourism experts throughout your learning who will help to develop your knowledge and skills to meet the needs of your customers.
As well as developing skills in tourism destinations, services, sales, communicating and advising customers you will also learn about planning and organising events in a tourism organisation. This could be from conducting tours, coordinating a range of activities to encourage visitors to a tourism destination to small public or events such as celebrations or seasonal attractions. The course is designed so that you will undertake a component of your training in a tourism organisation (vineyard, cellar door, local adventure centre, tour operator etc) so you can apply your learning and use the real life experiences towards your assessments and completions.
