Frequently Asked Questions

Is it really possible to learn how to become a travel consultant from home?

Yes it is. You'll find that our distance education courses are as interactive as any in-class course. Our school offers you practical exercises, excellent student support, and professional advice that you can access from the comfort of your own home. In addition, you can work through the units at your own pace and around your own schedule, so you can do as much or as little as you have time for.

Do I need previous training or experience?

No. Having previous experience or training is not important. You can successfully complete either Travel and Tourism or Travel and Tourism + GDS without any previous knowledge of the travel industry.

Do I need to have a license to be a travel consultant/agent?

Many jurisdictions do not require travel professionals to be licensed but some do. Be sure to find out what regulations apply to you by checking with your local government authority.

You will need to be registered with an industry regulating body if you wish to sell airfare. Your course will explain how you do this.

Are all the costs covered in the course fees?

Yes. Your course fees cover the cost of everything that you'll need. This includes

  • Your lesson and business texts
  • Your course guides and reference books
  • Full access to the online student center
  • Feedback and advice on all of your assignments direct from your personal tutor
  • GDS training (exclusive to Travel and Tourism + GDS students)

Does the School offer any payment plans?

Yes. We offer you three payment options for your convenience. If you decide to pay in full, you'll receive a discount. Otherwise, you can choose to pay each month using one of our installment plans. With the Accelerated Plan, you can pay your course fees over a period of 5 months. If you need to make your payments over a longer period of time, you can pay using the Regular Payment Plan.

How long will it take me to complete the course?

Travel and Tourism + GDS will take longer than Travel and Tourism to complete. As a rough guide, assuming that you'll work on the course for a couple of hours per week, you'll be able to complete your studies in approximately three months.

What if the course isn't right for me? What should I do if I change my mind?

You have 21 days from the day you receive your first package to decide what you'd like to do. If you decide that the course is not right for you, then you can simply return the materials in their original condition to receive a full refund. All we ask is that you call the school's office for shipping instructions.

Will the School help me once I've finished the course?

Yes. We continue to support you after you graduate. If you have questions about how to operate your travel business, or simply want to update us on your progress, contact the school via phone or email—we'd be thrilled to hear from you. We are here for you every step of the way—even after you graduate!

Is QC Career School registered with the Better Business Bureau?

Yes. The School has an A+ grade with the Better Business Bureau, which is the highest possible level of consumer satisfaction. You can search for our school under the company name QC Quality of Course Inc.

Will I receive a certificate in GDS training?

At the end of your GDS training, there is an exam. Students who receive more than 85% are eligible to receive a VIASINC Certificate of Completion (for a fee of $25/student) which is recognized by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to meet the GDS proficiency requirements for their agency accreditation program.

Will the course prepare me for the Travel Agent Proficiency test?

Yes. QC Travel School students are also eligible to receive a discount towards the test fee. Please contact the School for details.

Can I have my course package delivered to a PO box address?

Our couriers do not ship to PO box addresses at this time. When enrolling, please provide us with a civic address.

Is it possible to enroll by check?

Yes, all you need to do is download and print this enrollment form.
