GDS Training

Please note that we also offer acclaimed online training for the Global Distribution Systems (GDSs) used in the travel industry.

GDS Systems are used to create and manage passenger reservations, while DCS Systems are used to redeem these reservations at the airport and assist the passenger on the day of a travel. Airline agents use both GDS and DCS systems to do work, and a combination of these skills is particularly potent.
