Great Course and Great Support Given with Recruitment
by Caroline - March 2015

I really enjoyed this course and feel it has given me the knowledge and tools needed to become a Holiday Rep. Each module was fun and informative. The revision tests really drove what I had just learn't home and helped me to retain the information. When ever I needed help my course tutor was always there. The recruitment advisor was amazing and even checks over my application forms to the tour operators to make sure they have been completed correctly. All in all, I loved the course and felt it was very much worth the money.
