Travel Leaders of Tomorrow is the solution to a problem facing many aspects of the travel industry, where do we go to hire new talent? Travel Leaders of Tomorrow is the joint initiative between the Internova Travel Group and select industry suppliers intended as job training for travel professionals into an industry that has never been more viable then it is today. Online mega-travel agencies serve a purpose to today’s consumer, but many travelers are seeing the value of involving a professional travel agent in their trip planning.
On March 27, 2015 Forbes magazine wrote an enticing article about how the internet actually propelled the travel agent of yesterday from a 9-5 desk job to today’s world where many of the best travel agents work virtually, not only from home but from around the world, posting pictures on Instagram and tweeting, as they carry the world on their laptops and smart phones.
Travel agent jobs come in many different forms. Travel agencies may be storefront locations in large and small towns across North America or large host or corporate agencies where all of the travel agents work from home offices.
Travel Leaders of Tomorrow is proud to showcase that all our instructors have achieved their Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE®) from The Travel Institute. In addition to this industry standard, we have one instructor who also has an MBA, one with a Social Media Diploma and one who is a Certified Business Coach.

"I have been considering this for some time but struggled with the idea of attending an online course. Once I got going it was much easier than I anticipated and I enjoyed learning all the different aspects of the travel industry."
"Thank you Travel Leaders of Tomorrow for giving me the knowledge and courage to pursue this new career!"
"I have spent a long time "dreaming' about being a TA and now I can actually feel more confident in taking this huge leap! Thanks to Rich and Martin for being outstanding educators and coaches!!"
"It is very difficult sometimes when life gets busy and unexpected things come up to stay on track, and having the study group helped me keep pace when I fell behind. I would not recommend it any other way, plus I got to meet some fun and great people along the way."
"I didn’t have a lot of confidence with myself. The more time I spent in class, the more I got comfortable talking to my fellow students about my love for travel. When I started receiving positive feedback from other students telling me they can hear so much passion when I talked about travel, I knew I was going to be able to connect well with future clients."
"The weekly meetings were a huge part of learning...the interaction made the program feel more real! AWESOME!!"
