The Certified Student Travel Professional (CSTP) designation adds an additional level of professionalism in the student and youth travel industry. It is also intended to raise the awareness of student travel as a unique business segment. When you complete the program, you will receive a designation which will allow you to be recognized throughout the student travel industry as a professional specialist.
A CSTP designation will provide you with additional credibility amongst your peers and your clients. You will acquire specific knowledge of the student and youth travel industry as well as sharpen your business skills and increase basic knowledge. Training exercises will also give you the opportunity to spend time focusing on challenges and opportunities facing your organization.
