"The Travel Academy prepared me for the interview process perfectly. I felt comfortable and prepared in nearly every way for the interview and being able to secure my space in training! I met some really wonderful people here and hope to keep them as friends for life. The curriculum here has given me a heads up for initial training and made me feel confident that I will pass with "flying" colors!"
"Overall, it was a great experience here at The Travel Academy...TTA was a great tool!"
"Attending the Travel Academy has truly been a blessing. It was one of the best decisions I had ever made. From the teachers to the friends I have made, along with everything I have learned, it has been an unforgettable 10 weeks!! I know that with out this training and how it prepared me, I would never have landed my dream job with Republic Airways. I am truly thankful to all of you at The Travel Academy!!"
"My experience at TTA was very positive! I learned so much in such a short time. My roommates were wonderful, and I believe I have made lifelong friends here. Getting hired was quick but nerve-wracking time. I applied on a Thursday, and was hired over the phone the following Tuesday. I'm beyond excited to start training in Phoenix, and so thankful that coming to TTA made my dreams come true."
"My experience at TTA has been challenging sometimes, but amazing! The instructors were very knowledgeable on the subjects and countries they taught. I gained so much knowledge of cruise lines, travel agencies, and being a flight attendant in such a short time. The instructors are very helpful and will not let you fail. Study what they say and do your homework and yu will pass with flying colors. I learned to love dressing up and meeting new people. I came here, gained knowledge, listened, passed my tests, followed what my instructors instructed me to do, and it led me to getting hired. I love The Travel Academy, and I'm definitely going to be recruiting people back home and all over. "
"With my training at The Travel Academy, I was prepared for my interview with GoJet. I am super excited to start my career. I have met so many great new friends will be forever friends. The teachers at The Travel Academy have been very helpful! Make sure you always know your airport codes! The sky's the limit.Time for some great new adventures with GoJet! Thank you, Ms. Lynn for all your help! "
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been great. I made life long friends and created many beautiful memories. These I will never forget. The instructors were amazing as well as the office staff. My time at the academy was just great!"
"Throughout my experience at TTA, I have grown, matured, and learned a lot. I am very glad that I went to TTA and gained relationships about my new career! I am very proud to say that I couldn't have done it without my teachers and the support from my family!"
"The Travel Academy really gave me the necessary knowledge that allowed me to put my professionalism to use and rock my interview. Republic Airways sent a recruiter, and he made me feel comfortable. I wasn't nervous, and I think I wowed him. Thanks to The Travel Academy, I had an advantage over those who didn't already have prior knowledge of what is expected of flight attendants. I am so happy I came here and had the opportunity to embark on a life-changing journey!"
"I am so thankful for this opportunity that was made available to me here at the Travel Academy. I was able to expand my horizons and meet new people from all over!! I have had a fun experience and made a lot of great memories!"
"Attending The Travel Academy has been one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. I have met so many amazing people and have made lifetime-worthy friends. I would never have been able to get [a flight attendant career at] Mesa Airlines on my own, and I am forever grateful to each and everyone who has helped me along the way. Coming here has given me a sense of confidence and skills I know I needed to succeed. I know that with the training I received and the push I got from my instructors, I will be the best flight attendant I can be. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me!"
"I have had an amazing time at The Travel Academy. I feel like I am well prepared for a flight attendant job. My teachers are so friendly, helpful, and I am so glad that I have had them help me get my dream job. I have also been able to meet a bunch of amazing people here that I am sure are going to be lifelong friends. Coming to The Travel Academy has by far been one of the best decisions I've made."
"While attending The Travel Academy, I've made some lifelong friends and learned everything necessary for the travel industry. The teachers were great and really went the extra mile to make sure we were 100% comfortable with the criteria. I don't think I could have asked for a better group of teachers. It seemed as if they were strict at first, but I came to realize they were only preparing for us for what we were about to step into. It got tough sometimes, but I just reminded myself what was at the end of the tunnel. And here I am with a job three weeks before graduation!"
"I would say that coming to The Travel Academy was the right decision for my career. I came to the USA one year and four months ago to start a new life. Prior to that, I was an entrepreneur. But ever since, I've always wanted to be a flight attendant. Through my dedication, hard work, kindness to myself and my fellow individuals, and the help of my wonderful instructors (especially Ms. Sheila, Ms. Deanna, Ms. Lynn, Ms. Leslie and Ms. TJ), I was prepared to be strong enough and knowledgeable in making my path as flight attendant. Thank you, Travel Academy and more power!"
"I had my interview in Seattle, Washington at the Hilton Airport Hotel. It was a very challenging experience and somewhat scary. My hands and feet were shaking, but I got up there and did my introduction. Everything I've learned at The Travel Academy paid off. The Travel Academy prepared me for this day. It was a wonderful experience."
"This was an amazing experience with a lot of educational benefits. Besides missing home, I have had a chance to grow a lot in every angle. I am a different person from the one I was when I started. The whole staff at The Travel Academy is the most amazing team. My instructors made the long day worthwhile. Mr Armstrong himself is an amazing human being who knows each and every student, and he pays attention . My journey at The Travel Academy has been amazing!"
"When I made the decision to come to TTA, I was unsure of what the experience would be like. However, I feel it was the best decision. I have enjoyed every second in every class. The instructors are extremely helpful. I know that without the knowledge I gained at TTA, I would not have attained my job with SkyWest."
"The Travel Academy was instrumental in my success. All of the knowledge and public speaking practice prepared me for my Omni Air International open house. Miss Lynn worked with me after school for a couple days, and her assistance greatly contributed to me getting hired. Without The Travel Academy, I would have blindly applied for multiple major airlines, and taken any job offer. Instead, now I will be working for a great airline that fits my needs and desires, and I can't wait to get started. Miss TJ, Deanna, Leslie, Sheila, Cindy, and all other personnel helped me during the entire process. Without speaking to Michael on the phone I wouldn't even be here. Miss Kim helped me with the GI Bill and tuition. Miss Steph and Angie helped me with copies and mail. Thanks to Mr. Armstrong for running the school, and thank you Mr. Jeff for taking our pictures for LinkedIn and any and all tech support. Every employee at The Travel Academy contributed to my success in one way or another."
"My TTA experience was wonderful! I met so many amazing people and made the most of my time. Since I got here I know I wanted GoJet; that was my main goal. TTA prepared me for my interview and I was extremely successful with that. I am more than excited to begin my career with GoJet!"
"Luckily I am in The Travel Academy, and Ms. Cindy emailed Mesa [Airlines]. I got a video interview, and just half an hour later I got a call saying that I got the job! Because of The Travel Academy, I feel prepared and excited for training on June 17th- 10 days after graduation!"
"My experience here at TTA was really awesome! I met so many friends here that hopefully I continue to share memories with. I would love to thank Miss Julie for all the help with résumés and all the skills it takes to get an interview and succeed. I love that The Travel Academy gave me the opportunity to follow my dreams and start my career. So happy for the experience here and the meet all the amazing people that I did!"
"I don't know where to start, this episode in my life was an amazing experience coming to The Travel Academy. I learned a lot, had fun, participated in multiple activities, and most important was meeting new people from around the world, literally! I am so thankful for the opportunity that TTA has provided to me to become more successful. I can't express how grateful I am."
"I am very grateful of my choice to attend TTA! Going through our classes really made me much more confident about going through initial training. The school has also given me the opportunity to make lifelong friends that share the same goals and dreams that I have. Thanks, TTA!"
"I owe it all to Ms. TJ! She sent me the job opening, and within a few weeks, I went through the interview process and got an offer. She helped me find a perfect fit- a great group of travel agents (including another Travel Academy grad), in the community where I grew up. I start right after graduation!"
"I believe that The Travel Academy really prepared me for a career in the travel industry. All the teachers are very nice and really want to help you be successful. I loved meeting all these new people from all over the world and making new friends."
"So the past two weeks have been the greatest days of my life, and dreams do come true! I had a successful interview with United Airlines today, and I was hired as a flight attendant. It has been my dream for many years and finally I was able to make it happen. Thank you, The Travel Academy, for teaching me the valuable skills needed to be successful! I'll be heading to Houston Texas in April for the training! Super happy!"
"It's not where you came from- its where you’re going! The Travel Academy has been nothing short of amazing, and you can tell they genuinely care about your future!
"I'm happy I was able to recommend my sister, Samantha and cousin, Jazmin, to The Travel Academy! They seem to be loving it there and are excited about their future travel careers. As for me I'm at Compass Airlines. I was hired in April 2014, so I've been there for 2 years now and loving it! I can't thank you [TTA} enough for assisting me in starting this career. Hope all is well!"
"If I hadn't attended The Travel Academy, I would not be in this stage in my life. So thank you to all the staff at TTA!"
"Ten weeks ago I found myself both excited and apprehensive to be making my way to Minnesota to attend The Travel Academy. Little did I know it would be one of the greatest experiences of my life. I am so blessed to have been a part of the January 2016 class, and I wish you all the best of everything. Cheers to the nights that turned into mornings and the friends that turned into family. I love you all more than you could imagine. Thank you for being part of my life, and I will cherish the memories forever."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was amazing. I didn't expect to learn so much knowledge and experience of a flight attendant. It was good times with positive, helpful people. I miss you all so much. Thank you for my experience and taking the time and dedication to help me move forward and continue my dream with GoJet Airlines as a flight attendant."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was one of a kind. I not only learned valuable information for the travel industry, I grew tremendously as a professional individual. The instructors here are so eager to help, which made the learning experience great! I have met so many amazing people, and while I am excited to move on with the great career as a flight attendant, I will greatly miss the many friends I have made. I wouldn't trade the past ten weeks for anything!"
"I have had and amazing experience at The Travel Academy. The teachers are wonderful and I have made friends that will last a lifetime. "
"I can proudly say that what I learned here at The Travel Academy helped me not only get the job, but put me above some other candidates. I had interviewed to become a travel agent, and I received an offer to become an Airfare Expert because of my Sabre and airport code knowledge. This school really is something special. You will learn so much in just a few short weeks. Not only that, it will transform you professionally. You'll find confidence you never knew you had. You'll also make some lifelong friends in the process. If you're on the fence about coming here, let me offer some advice: ATTEND THE TRAVEL ACADEMY!"
"In 10 short weeks here, The Travel Academy has provided me with so much knowledge and so many tools to be successful in the travel industry. There's so much I learned that I will use with future careers! I'll miss everybody very much and I look forward to beginning my career right here as an admissions representative at The Travel Academy! Thanks for all of the opportunities!
"My experience at The Travel Academy was amazing! Not only did I meet lifelong friends, I also gained the experience of a lifetime! I am so grateful for The Travel Academy and the instructors who taught me more than I ever thought I would learn about the travel industry. I have grown so much as a person being here, and now I have the confidence to be a fantastic, successful Flight Attendant! A big thank you goes to the instructors for being so encouraging!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been AMAZING, and if it weren't for the hardworking staff, I wouldn't have been able to receive two job offers. I've also met some really good people here that am proud to call friends which are more like family now, and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. "
"Coming from a small town in Pennsylvania, I jumped back and forth with what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I loved to travel, but didn't know how to get started until I heard about The Travel Academy. The teachers were excellent and taught me everything I needed to know about the travel industry. I met a lot of people from different countries and made lifelong friendships. Coming to The Travel Academy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. "
"I heard about The Travel Academy from my dad, a pilot for JetBlue Airways, and he asked me if I wanted to go to school in Minnesota so I can acquire the skills, experience, and learning new interview tricks in order to be hired as a flight attendant. After a couple of turned down offers, I finally got an offer from GoJet Airlines thanks to the skills I learned from the The Travel Academy. After interviewing with many other airlines for two years before coming to this school, I finally achieved the job of my dreams. If it wasn't for The Travel Academy, I wouldn't have made it this far. I am now a flight attendant trainee for GoJet Airlines and I can't wait to start my very first day of training."
"I'm very happy that I learned so much at The Travel Academy. Before I had no experience in the travel industry, but now I know a lot about travel industry!"
"The Travel Academy has definitely prepared me for flight attendant training, and I couldn't thank the instructors enough, they really make sure you understand what is being taught. If I had not attended The Travel Academy I wouldn't have the confidence or knowledge to succeed as a flight attendant. "
"First and foremost, I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to have attended this wonderful institution, to receive the proper training for my ongoing career as a Flight Attendant. The instructors and staff are willing to help you with anything educationally, and professionally, to succeed in your dream careers. This was all a dream before coming here. Believe it or not, your dreams will come true while attending The Travel Academy. Hard work, and dedication to your school work, work ethic, and professional standards is all it took to be a successful student while attending here. I recommend this institution for anyone who is willing to take on their dreams and fulfill them all in just 10 weeks! I will miss everyone, and I will never forget what I gained mentally, physically, socially, and -most importantly- professionally. "
"The staff has been nothing short of amazing, and you can tell they genuinely care about our future! "
"In the beginning, 10 weeks seemed like an eternity, especially not knowing anyone or what to expect. But in half the time, I have gained not only the knowledge needed for my future career, but also friendships I never thought I would have found here. The instructors show that they truly care for each student and want nothing less than success for each one of us."
"The Travel Academy has done an excellent job to prepare me for a travel career. I not only learned about safety, customer service, and geography, but also how to enter the professional world. The teachers and staff do truly care about our success"
"10 weeks. That’s all it took.
On my way here to Minnesota on the airplane, I had no idea I would’ve met so many people I would ever call my family. Heck, I strictly brought business clothes because I thought I wasn’t going to have a social life. But no! I got the exact opposite. I ended up making friends from all over the world. No, not friends- FAMILY! I gained a whole new family here at The Travel Academy. A family I have had countless laughs with and made abundant memories with. And I’m not just talking about the students. I especially mean the teachers and staff as well. The teachers and staff have been there every step of the way- from Miss Cindy’s kindness quotes to helping us choose the right job for us when we had job offers line up.
I’ll cut it short and end it with a quote hanging in Miss Lynn’s class room that I fell in love with. I will always return to The Travel Academy when I have a layover in Minneapolis during my endeavors all over the world with Omni Air International, for this is where my journey began as an aspiring flight attendant. 'Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return.'
"I like the quote from Angel Messenger that says, 'Do what you do best; direct your thoughts at an impossible goal and then defy all odds by taking the remarkable road to reach your destination.' Much mahalo and aloha to all my instructors."
"Coming to The Travel Academy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After retiring from the Air Force, it was time to find a new career, and I'm finally at a place in my life that I have the freedom to pursue my lifelong dream of being a flight attendant. I had to work really hard and started to lose confidence in myself and doubted I would get the job of my dreams. I met the most amazing people while I was here, and we all pulled each other up and kept each other going. These ten weeks have been life-changing for me. Not only did I get a job offer from GoJet, I also got the base that I wanted! I will never forget the friendships and the amazing memories made while I was here!"
"My experience here at The Travel Academy was great. I will be sad to leave everyone but very happy to leave here with a job and seeing my family again."
"I always wanted a career in travel, but I never thought it would be possible - until I joined The Travel Academy. It has been one of the best decisions of my life. Everything the instructors and and staff do is to help you become the most successful person in the travel industry. I am truly grateful for everyone. They taught me everything needed to be a successful, professional, and grateful flight attendant. They show you the path to success. You just have to take the steps, and because of them I'm running down that road. Thank you, Travel Academy. I owe my career to your dedicated staff and instructors. "
"Deciding to attend The Travel Academy has by far been a blessing and the greatest decision for for my future flight attendant career. Now it's time to spread my wings and fly!"
"I have enjoyed everything that I have learned here. I am excited for the jobs I am going to attain from the knowledge I have gained at The Travel Academy."
"Attending The Travel Academy has been a great experience. I learned so much in only ten weeks. And I am very excited to start my new career as a flight attendant!"
"I had a great experience at The Travel Academy. The trainers helped me create résumés, cover letters, practice open house interview questions, had me come in dressed in our business suits for professional image checks to ensure we were fully prepared to interview with the airlines. One of the best things about The Travel Academy is that they have lifetime placement assistance. We also got hands-on experience at a flight attendant training facility where we got to go inside an actual aircraft , jump down the slide, learn how to operate the doors, and got hands-on training with the emergency equipment. I thought it was really a helpful experience."
"I've enjoyed my experience here at The Travel Academy so much. I've learned everything I need to be a successful travel professional, and it has also given me a lot more confidence. The instructors have been so amazing and helpful."
"The Travel Academy has been a wonderful and life changing time for myself. The past ten weeks I have met many new people that I have become very close too. Knowing we will see each other in the greatest industry there is makes me smile and feel confident that I chose the right career. The Academy gave me the opportunity to return to the airlines and has helped me expand my knowledge and learn the most current procedures for travel agencies, airlines, and cruise ships. I am excited to have been offered a position on American Cruise Lines and a wonderful possibility to work for Envoy Airlines. There is not a doubt that I would definitely recommend this wonderful experience to anyone who has the drive, ambition, and dream to work in the travel industry. "
"This has truly been a wonderful experience! I have met some amazing people from my roommates, classmates, to my instructors. Through the training I have received here I have obtained a flight attendant career with GoJet Airlines- as well as knowledge, training, and experience for almost any career in the travel and tourism industry. I will always be thankful and will honestly miss everyone and everything at TTA! Thank you!"
"I am not the same person I was when I started The Travel Academy ten weeks ago. The friendships I have made here and the skills I have learned have forever changed me. Spending ten years as a stay-at-home mom and wife, I forgot I was more than just someone's mom or wife. My time here has given me a new-found confidence, but more importantly has helped me rediscover the type of person I want to be. It's a wonderful feeling remembering that I am an individual with a lot to offer. Going forward, I now I will have a successful career in the travel industry and that I will make many more friendships. The future looks bright, but it will never outshine my time here. The friendships I have made with my classmates and instructors have taught me more than just skills needed to succeed in the industry. They have given me the skills to succeed in life. "
"The teachers were very helpful. They were always willing to answer any questions you have. They push you to be the best you can. All the employees were amazing. I am so thankful for the experience at The Travel Academy."
"I came here not knowing what was ahead of me and not knowing anyone. As the weeks went on I learned so much and met so many amazing people that I can now call great friends. It's unreal. Not only am I prepared for my upcoming career, I'm going into it with people who are here to support me because they are sharing this dream with me. Thank you, Travel Academy, for widening my horizon and bringing so many new people into my life. "
"I have definitely had a unique experience at The Travel Academy. I have learned so many things that will carry with me for the rest of my life. I feel I have everything I need to be a successful flight attendant, thanks to Ms. Lynn. I hope future students are just as successful or more."
"Thank you, Travel Academy, for teaching me and giving all the knowledge I need for this industry. I am glad I came here! "
"I had a wonderful time at The Travel Academy! Not only did I make memories here that will last me a lifetime, but I also gained all the knowledge I need about the travel industry. I am so happy to have gotten the opportunity to interview with so many airlines, and I am excited to now start my career as a flight attendant with Trans States Airlines. Thank you, TTA!"
"My time at The Travel Academy has been very memorable. I got the chance to meet so many lifelong friends and learn about the travel industry that I will cherish."
"When I applied to attend The Travel Academy, I had every intention of becoming a flight attendant. With the knowledge I have gained from Miss Cindy's class I was able to switch gears. Now I will be working on a cruise ship off the coast of Hawaii. Next to that I have had a great opportunity to meet so many people whom I will never forget. "
"Before attending The Travel Academy, I went in with very minimal knowledge of the travel industry. Approaching graduation I feel as if I'm ready to take on the world. The teachers and staff have all been so great to me and have taught me so much. I have made so many friends here that I know will last a lifetime. I wish my classmates all the best. Thank you, TTA, for making my dreams become reality."
"It was great! Thank you, everyone- especially the school staff!"
"Coming to The Travel Academy was definitely a great decision. Here I learned more about the travel industry than I even anticipated. When I arrived, I had plans to pursue a career as a flight attendant, but after Miss Cindy's class in cruise I changed my mind quickly. Who could pass up the opportunity to sail around Hawaii? This school is definitely awesome in the aspect of learning things about yourself and also making lifelong friends. Miss TJ has been so positive with job placement, arranging open houses, and the paperwork to go along with the job you accept. Thank you, Travel Academy."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been amazing overall. I knew I had to go big or go home. Choosing The Travel Academy has opened my eyes to go big, with all the many opportunities in the travel industry, there was no looking back. Getting hired in the seventh week of training with Trans States Airlines was an awesome feeling. Thanks to the instructors and the teamwork, I will be starting my dream career sooner than ever. Thank you so much! "
"When I first came here I was just excited to be in another state. I didn't know what to expect, who I would meet, who I was rooming with, anything! Then the first week went by and I loved it. I made new friends and experienced new things. Some things that I really loved were the inspirational speeches from Curt, Cindy and TJ. I wish people back home could hear them.
The teachers here are all amazing. They go through everything we need to know step by step. Not only are the teachers academic, but they have awesome personalities- making learning more fun. Before I wasn't serious at all being in the school because I wasn't sure if this is what I really wanted to do. Then I had a talk with with Curt and Cindy, and they gave me the push I needed. I can't stress how hard TJ works to make sure everyone is up to date on everything that is going on. She is truly a gift to this school.
I highly recommend this school to anyone thinking about joining the travel industry. I know I'll have an advantage going into training. I thank The Travel Academy so much for all of their hard work. Anyone coming here will be 100% satisfied. These people really do work with you before and after you're hired. I also can't forget about [admissions representative] Michael. He's so amazing- always full of energy and willing to help someone with no problems. He's the main reason I was so excited to be in this school."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been more than amazing. It all started when I saw my friend from high school posting pictures on Facebook and it looked like she was having the time of her life. I asked her where she went to school and she showed me The Travel Academy. I'm more than grateful because I wasn't sure where I was going in my life. Ever since the first day of school I wouldn't change a thing. I love all my teachers and everything they teach me. My roommates will be my lifelong friends. Having the opportunity to become a flight attendant will make my dreams come true."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been a great journey. Being an older student, I was unsure if I could make it through, but I have surprised even my expectations. These ten weeks have gone very quickly, and I have gained so much knowledge about the travel industry. I feel very prepared for my next big steps."
"It was an awesome experience. I can't ask for more. I had an amazing time with everyone. I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn with my classmates and graduate. I love all of my teachers and you have a wonderful management team."
"After having a job that I worked from home, I started to feel shut in and knew I had to find something to get me out and away from home. So I started doing searches for flight attendant schools, and The Travel Academy kept coming up. So I then started checking out their website and filled out the forms- not thinking I would get in. Within a day I was receiving calls from The Travel Academy. They answered all my questions, and that's when I knew this was the ticket for me. I got so excited to come and fulfill a lifelong dream. So here I am with two offers and one more interview- and some major decisions to make. I would highly recommend The Travel Academy to everyone. My experience here has been life-changing for the better. I can';t wait to come back and show off my wings some day."
"Without the Travel Academy, I would not have been successful. I stared out wanting to be a flight attendant, but as time went on, I changed career paths. With the wonderful help of Cindy and TJ, I was hired with Norwegian Cruise Line. Cindy is a wonderful instructor and I promise you, you will learn so much! She truly cares for each and every student. She wants you to succeed. TJ gives her undivided attention and helps tremendously to get you hired. The Travel Academy will always be a part of my family! I love each and every instructor! "
"May I first start off with thank you for the experience here at The Travel Academy. Coming here was hard at first because of the fact that I have never been away from home for a long period of time, but a lot of the people and all of the instructors here have really made me feel special and a part of The Travel Academy family. Leaving here will be tough because of the bonds that I have formed with everyone here, but that doesn't mean I will lose touch. I will make sure to keep everyone informed and send everyone pictures of my experience on American Cruise Lines. Thank you again for this wonderful experience, and I will definitely make sure to tell everyone I know about the school."
"The experience at The Travel Academy has been one of the best in my life. This school is an amazing gateway to the airline and travel industry. Everything that I have learned here is so key to my desired career, and I cant believe all gotten to learn within eight weeks. I immediately knew I wanted to become a flight attendant, and with the help of my instructors, hard work, and determination, that dream is quickly becoming a reality."
"During my time at the Travel academy, I learned a lot of things. I learned not be be afraid to fail and not to be a failure. All of my instructors showed me how to be a professional in life. I really appreciate the way they valued the students. At the beginning, I was wondering if I would make it, how ever without my teachers and my determination, I would not have been able to make my dreams come true. I would not trade my experience for anything! It was awesome!"
"I was most attracted to the 10-week [300-Hour Expanded] program The Travel Academy offered. 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!

"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!"

"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.

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."

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 love to learn. Geography is my strong suit, and I'm glad TTA gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and shine!"
