Almost 5,000 travel agents are now active on the Clia UK & Ireland e-learning platform following a 60% rise in participation.
A further seven destination learning modules are being added to the programme this week.
UK and Ireland director Andy Harmer said: “We have seen a rapid increase in the number of travel agents registering to use the Learning Academy.
“This rise is due to a number of reasons including our City & Guilds accreditation; we run the only travel agent programme currently to receive this recognition.
“Clia-accredited agents also stand out to potential customers as being cruise experts, so providing an important competitive advantage.”
He added: “Destination remains the number one reason cited by consumers when considering a cruise holiday.
“To ensure Clia-accredited agents are fully equipped to respond to destination queries, we are launching seven new modules covering the world’s popular and emerging cruising regions.”
The new e-learning courses being launched cover:
- Cruising Alaska
- Cruising the Arctic and the Antarctic
- Cruising the Atlantic Islands
- Cruising the Indian Ocean
- Cruising the Middle East
- Cruising on the Nile
- Transatlantic Cruising
