“I don’t believe any other school would have been able to teach me what your school did! Marion and Louise’s enthusiasm is incredible. You are passionate about what you teach and really care that your students understand. It was a pleasure coming into class each day.
Determination and hard work earned me an honour grade and diploma in International Travel and Tourism. This course was perfect for me as a young adult who did not have two years to dedicate to classes. Your course allowed me the freedom to study and work while maintaining the lifestyle I had.
Yet you made it even better as with my diploma in hand, the same week I graduated I was hired as a full time travel agent, specializing in customizing tours to Australia, New Zealand, Europeand South Pacific. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without your help. I felt confident and well trained to handle my daily tasks which includes planning complex itineraries and accounting. Thank you, Cheers!”
