"I was most attracted to the 10-week [300-Hour Expanded] program...The experience has been awesome. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Thank you!"
"Attending The Travel Academy was the best decision I have ever made. It wasn't an easy journey to get there, but once at TTA, I excelled. I went into it thinking I wanted to be a flight attendant, but as I learned the other areas of the industry, I decided that being in the cruising industry is where I would be the happiest, but learning it all and having options was a nice benefit of this program. After applying to several cruise lines, both while attending TTA and after graduation, I stumbled upon Oceania Cruises, an upper premium cruise line that offers mid-size ships at mid-size prices. They are based in Miami, but have a call center in Omaha, NE which is where I live. As a Cruise Specialist in the reservation center it is imperative for me know the product, terminology and the deck plans to each ship and all the amenities they have to offer. Everything that was covered in the Cruise Line class from the terminology to the popular cruise routes and even the history of cruising and the many cruise lines has already be very helpful and useful in this new job. Without the Travel Agent and Cruise class Portions of The Travel Academy curriculum, I wouldn't be excelling as much as I am. Even though I am not using Sabre, knowing the basics of a GDS system has helped tremendously. In addition, knowing the airport codes, geography and major attractions at popular tourist sites is proving useful. I am very thankful to The Travel Academy and the program they offer. My job is already proving to be a great fit. I have impressed the trainers, supervisors and even the other trainees. Thank you to The Travel Academy for the education and training. Best experience I have had in my life up to this point! "
"When I arrived at the Travel Academy's housing, two of my roommates were already there. We immediately became friends and I have met so many amazing people here at the academy. TTA has successfully prepared me to leave home and start my own journey and for that, I am very thankful."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was fantastic! I made so many friends and learned so much about the travel industry."
"The experience I've had at The Travel Academy has been incredible. I've met people from all over the U.S. and even outside the country. Thanks to the amazing instructors, I got hired at Trans States Airlines my fifth week! I will be starting my dream career in just a few months. I wouldn't have done it without the help and support from The Travel Academy. "
"I am so thankful for The Travel Academy. I've learned so much. Right now I feel prepared mentally and physically. I'm also grateful to have met my teachers and fellow students. They're all nice and supportive. I have so much fun in class. The teachers always teach interesting subjects. Thank you! I heart The Travel Academy! And always remember to be a professional 100% of the time."
"My experience with The Travel Academy has been amazing.

Thank you so much!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been awesome. Words cannot describe how I feel. You get to meet people from all over the world that you would have never thought you would meet.

I couldn't have done it without The Travel Academy."
"Attending The Travel Academy has been the best thing that has ever happened in my life. It's much more than what I expected. I have gained a lot of travel knowledge and industry skills. Everyday is a new day at The Travel Academy. You always leave learning something new. I'm only halfway through the program, and I was offered a position at Trans States Airlines. I can't wait to hop into that aircraft and start using my knowledge I gained at The Travel Academy. Thank you for everything, teachers and staff!"
"I would first like to start off by thanking all my teachers for their amazing help. They prepared me in every way possible to be able to achieve this position. The Travel Academy has been one of the greatest experiences of my life! I am very excited and nervous about my new job with Trans States Airlines, but I am sure I will do fine- thanks to everyone here.

Thank you, Travel Academy team. I am proud and honored to have attended your prestigious academy. "
"My dream job was to become a flight attendant ever since I turned 18. I tried to apply for any airline that was hiring and never succeeded. I tried an online course to become a flight attendant with no results until last year. I found this school with a Google search. I was financially struggling so I did not apply. I talked to my parents and they said they would help me, so I was then able to enroll. It was the best decision I could have ever made. TTA helped me with everything to reach my dream goal. Thank you so much!"
"My experience has been wonderful. My roommates were the best roommates I could have ever received. The school was also amazing. The teachers really care about helping you to get hired. I was hired half way through the program. The teachers are awesome and I also make life long friends."

"The Travel Academy has been an awesome experience for me. I don't think I would have been able to achieve my goals if it wasn't for this school. I admit I was a little bit discouraged at first, but everyone did their jobs and were able to find us positions. I truly appreciate everything that the academy has done for me and something I will never forget."
"This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made- coming to the USA and achieving something that has always been my passion. Coming from Africa can take a great toll on you- being in a totally new place where people do things differently, but I am glad these great people opened their door to me and let me in. We all come from different walks of life, and this is a place where not only your dreams come true, but you leave with lifetime friendships with classmates and instructors.

What I loved most was all the amazing support from the instructors and staff. When I first started I wasn't that confident. But in my short time here I overcame one of my biggest fears, which is public speaking. If it weren't for the staff, instructors, and all the amazing friends I made at The Travel Academy, I would still be a shy girl that sat in the back of the classroom. Now I'm confident and extremely excited to take on my new career as a flight attendant for PSA Airlines. I owe it all to The Travel Academy."
"Coming to The Travel Academy at first was overwhelming...Little did I know November 7th, 2014 would change my life forever. PSA Airlines came [to The Travel Academy], and I'm very blessed they chose me to be a part of their team. The Travel Academy has changed me into a great and better person, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Anyone thinking about attending should definitely enroll.

"The Travel Academy is one of the best experiences of my life. The teachers and staff are some of the most supportive people I have ever had the pleasure to learn from.

If it weren't for The Travel Academy, I don't think it would have been this easy to interview and answer questions correctly. I've always been a mature and well-rounded human being, but The Travel Academy helped me stay more focused and be more professional. Also, I learned so much more than I was expecting- and then some! I love to learn. Geography is my strong suit, and I'm glad TTA gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and shine!"
"My overall experience at the Travel Academy has been very good. I have learned a lot of very useful things and landed a job in the industry. I have wanted to be a part of the flight industry since I was a little boy. TTA gave me the skills, knowledge, and tools that I needed to get a job in the airline industry. My investment in this school definitely was worth it. My future career has been forever been impacted by making the decision to come to The Travel Academy."
