Disney College of Knowledge

I am interested in becoming a travel agent and specializing in Disney vactions. How do I go about completing the Disney College of Knowledge ? I know you can take the course on-line. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Any advice?

Re: Disney College of Knowledge

I may be wrong on this but as far as I know you can't just take Disney's College of Knowledge. You have to be affliated with a Travel Agency and have an IATAN number to register. Sorry! Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions.

Re: Disney College of Knowledge

Only travel agents can take the College of Disney Knowledge. Once you are an agent and have an IATA, CLIA or ARC number, you are allowed access to the site so you can take the course.

I recently took the course myself. It's pretty detailed, but easy to pass.

If you're thinking of becoming a travel agent, you may want to check with local colleges or online colleges for courses you can take. Then you can start applying for jobs with agencies. Also, if you have a strong sales background may be a plus in some agencies eyes, especially if you're new or learning the travel industry.

Good luck!

Re: Disney College of Knowledge

There was another thread a while back on becoming a travel agent. I know I posted a couple of links on some research and information websites. If I can dig them up today, I'll post them again.
