Provides strategic coverage of the skills needed to succeed as a corporate travel arranger in a modern travel management evironment. The online training is organized into the following course units:

Students who receive an 85% or better on the final exam1 will receive a professional certificate verifying that they have sucessfully completed the training. To be considered for employment opportunities at American Express Global Business Travel2, students must "opt in" to participate in the preferred employment program3. Students who choose not to participate will still receive their certificates.


1 Students may re-take the certificate exam a maximum of 3 times. If a score of 85% has still not been achieved, the student must re-take the training.

2 Interviews to be offered when and where hiring opportunities occur. While the possession of a certificate from this program does not guarantee an interview or an offer of employment, the program ideally prepares potential candidates for success on the job and confers upon them preferred status.

3 In order to be considered for employment opportunites, students must "opt in" to have their basic information shared with American Express Global Business Travel. Only the most basic personal (name, email address, geographical location) and training (exam results) information will be shared, and only with American Express Global Business travel. Students may "opt out" at any time to cancel their participation in this program.
