Business Travel Certificate Program

The Business Travel Certificate Program was developed by American Express Global Business Travel in conjunction with VIASINC. Students who successfully complete this program earn a certificate verifying that they have mastered the hard and soft skills needed to manage complex travel arrangements in a modern business travel environment.

Students in this program can also "opt in" to be considered for preferred employment opportunities at American Express Global Business Travel1. Please note that you will still receive your Business Travel Certificate even if you choose not to participate in this preferred employment offer.

The Business Travel Training Package includes the online training courses needed to prepare for this certification, as well as the actual online certification exam required to obtain your certificate. Before starting the training, you should have already completed a basic VIASINC GDS Training Course (preferrably Sabre) or have equivalent work experience.

Certification Exam Overview

In order to obtain your Business Travel Certificate, you must pass the final certification exam with a score of 85% or better. The certification exam is included at the end of the online Business Travel Training Package.

If you do not pass the certification exam the first time, you will have 2 more chances to take it. If you still have not obtained an 85% or better on the exam after 3 attempts, you will be required to re-take the training.

The exam consists of 50 questions including multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, and fill-in-the-blank questions.

Receiving Your Certificate

The cost of printing, processing, and shipping the certificate is included in the price of the training. Within 2 business weeks after passing the final certification exam, your certificate will be printed and mailed out to you. No further action is required on your part.

Preferred Employment Opportunities

During the online training, you will be given the option to "opt in" to be considered for preferred employment opportunities at American Express Global Business Travel. This requires that your basic information (name/contact info and exam results) be shared with American Express Global Business Travel. Only the most basic information will be shared in order to identify each candidate and their performance in the training.

Your information will only be shared with American Express Global Business Travel. You may also "opt out" of this voluntary program at any time. If you would like to cancel your participation in this program, simply send an email to and we will promptly remove your information from the preferred employment database.
