Crown’s Tourism Certificate Leads To…

You’ll learn about the tourism industry, both at home and abroad.

We’ll cover how the industry works, and what options you have when the course is over. You will learn the important stuff like health and safety laws, the tourism economy and how a travel workplace operates.

Being a ‘people person’ you’ll easily pick up customer service and communication skills to make sure your visitors and guests have the best experience possible.

The tourism industry is a very exciting place to work, and your career could take you absolutely anywhere from ski country and beach towns to international companies like Club Med and Disney!

If you’re looking for even more excitement, your Crown certificate could lead you to a career in adventure tourism or even aviation – the possibilities are endless.

Crown’s history of producing grads that go on to supreme travel jobs means we can give you an edge when it comes to finding work.

Our course is only open to the public three times a year, so you need to book yourself in for an interview today. Why Crown? A well-designed course is what you’re getting at Crown Institute giving you the knowledge and skills required to understand how the industry works.
