“I needed a career change and began exploring my options in the travel industry, due to my life-long love of travel. After researching several learning institutions I decided that Travel College Canada would be the best place to launch my new career.The program was very comprehensive and offered a wealth of information and skills-training to prepare me for entry into the travel and tourism industry.
Louise and the entire staff were there every step of the way, from funding to learning to career-preparation. Before I had even finished the program, she helped me land a fantastic opportunity in the cruise industry.Following the completion of my program, with her help, I launched my new career at sea working with one of the largest retail companies in the cruise industry. Now my life is a working vacation. I meet thousands of people from around the world every week and get to explore wonderful cities and sights around the world.
So far I’ve hiked in Norway, visited the beautiful Azores, ate pizza in Napoli, be inspired by Florence, relaxed on the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, dined in the south of France, and explored Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin, Bruges, Tallinn, Malaga, Lisbon, Gibraltar and St. Petersburg. I credit the entire staff and management at Travel College Canada for how I spend my days working or relaxing, wherever I am in the world, and for the amazing friends and colleagues I’ve met along the way.” – Kerrian Hoo-Fong
“I was a past student at Travel College Canada. I found it a wonderful experience. I had just moved from northern BC to small town outside the greater Toronto area with my husband and 3 boys. It was a busy time and I was looking to start a new career. When I found the Travel College website and looked into, I found exactly what I was looking for. I could get my education from plus still look after my family. Louise and her staff were always available to answer phone calls or return emails. I don’t think I ever had to wait more than half a day to get a reply. I really felt like part of a big group. The assistance, support, and encouragement I received was more than I hoped for.” – Janine
