CheapOair is proud to partner with Covenant House, an organization dedicated to rescuing homeless youth from the streetand providing them with resources for a new life.
On September 8, 2009, CheapOair began the first in a series of 6-week-long Agent Training Programs to share the knowledge and expertise of our dedicated travel professionals with Covenant House youth.
The goal of this program is to teach the entry-level basics needed to become a travel professional. The course focuses on understanding and learning the computer reservation system used by travel agents to book airline, hotel and car reservations for customers. Classes will be conducted at Covenant House, with students visiting CheapOair to shadow agents for first-hand exposure.
At the end of the 6-week program, graduating students will have the skills needed to apply for travel agent internships and positions at CheapOair and throughout the industry.
