What is the admission process?
The admission requirements for Travel Leaders Academy include a high school diploma or GED, a personal interview and effective communication skills in the English language.
To be considered for admission, you must complete an Information Form and submit it to the Academy. A representative from the school will contact you to arrange a personal interview to determine your qualifications. This interview also provides you with the opportunity to learn more about the Academy.
Because enrollment is limited, it’s advised that you request your personal interview as far in advance as possible. You may, however, enroll though the first day of class, on a space available basis. If you are accepted into the program, you will receive a copy of the Enrollment Agreement. You will need to sign the Enrollment Agreement and submit it with your enrollment fee. You will then be ready to begin your training as an official student in Travel Leaders Academy.
Do you help with placement?

We also maintain contact with many other travel employers regarding placement. Although employment cannot be guaranteed, placement assistance will be given to any graduate who has satisfied all academic and financial obligations with the school.
Does everyone get career placement assistance?
Career placement assistance will be provided to a graduate who has earned and maintained a C average or higher during the required course of study, successfully completed all class projects, and met mandatory attendance and other requirements.
