CERTIFICATE III IN TRAVEL (SIT30216)


National Training Package for Tourism, Travel and Hospitality
(SIT 12)

For anyone looking to start a career in travel or tourism or perhaps continuing your professional development, a formal training qualification is the best head-start in progressing your career.

In fostering an industry of highly qualified and trained staff, AFTA endorses seeking a Certificate III in Travel as the entry level qualification required for any travel agent consultant or front line travel selling staff.

The Certificate III in Travel qualification structure was designed by AFTA Education and Training in conjunction with the Industry Skills Council for Tourism, Travel, Hospitality & Events (Service Skills Australia) in 2010 for the purpose of fulfilling foundational knowledge required in becoming a competent travel consultant.

There are four key knowledge & skills sets under pinning as pillars in the make up of the fourteen core units, which are supported by three electives relevant to job outcomes.

This modulated format of qualification provides students with an opportunity to acquire the most relevant competencies to their immediate needs and also allows the current workforce to choose relevant modules to up-skill themselves without being forced to take the entire course.

Credits can be accumulated from each cluster of competency units to reach the desired qualification at your own pace of time.

To satisfy the requirements of this qualification, 17 units must be completed:

  • 14 core competency units
  • 3 elective units, consisting of:
  • 1 unit from the list below
  • 2 units from the list below, elsewhere in SIT12 Training Package, or any other current Training Package or accredited course.
For any questions regarding Cert III training or colleges offering this course, please complete the enquiry form below and email to admin@afta.edu.au
