Become a travel agent, do a tourism course

The tourism industry has seen “nine consecutive years of expenditure growth,” according to Tourism Research Australia. Our SIT30116 Certificate III in Tourism (Travel agency stream) at Holmesglen gives you an introduction to this dynamic and exciting field.

With Holmesglen’s tourism course, kick-starting your career could be as easy as throwing a shrimp on the barbie.

Our tourism course is delivered two days a week (9.30am – 4pm). This means you can maintain your lifestyle and fit in other commitments around your study.

The Certificate III is a great way to decide if the tourism industry is right for you – making it perfect if you’re changing careers and want flexibility.

What jobs can I do following a tourism course?

This course prepares you for a future role in a retail travel agency. Travel is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. You will help create memorable experiences for your customers on a daily basis.

What does our tourism course involve?

We like to give you a clear view of the tourism industry. You will learn:

  • Good customer service

What are my further study options?

Learning is a lifelong journey. While a Certificate III will give you good foundation skills, maybe you will want to grow your knowledge and increase your career opportunities. If so, graduates can go on to study our SIT40116 Certificate IV in Travel and Tourism.
