Our travel advisor mates have told us they are keen to use this lockdown period to update their knowledge and learn something new.
Tourism Australia has several initiatives to help keep advisors learning and engaged during this unprecedented challenge to our industry.
We hope the Aussie Specialist Program allows you to take a break, learn something new and daydream about the destinations waiting for you and your clients when the world starts to travel again.
We have several incentives to encourage advisors to complete the Aussie Specialist Program and/or take some additional training modules.
We are encouraging advisors to register and complete the Aussie Specialist Program by May 31 for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
To be in the running, complete five training modules and then email your qualification certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those advisors who registered and/or started their Aussie Specialist training but didn’t quite finish are referred to as ‘trainees’.
We know how it is, sometimes life gets busy and you’re not able to spend the time on a training program. While the world is on lockdown, now is the time to revisit the Aussie Specialist Program and pick up where you left off.
To encourage ‘trainee’ advisors to return to the program and complete their training, we have been running a weekly incentive where should they finish and become a qualified Aussie Specialist, they go into the draw to win some amazing prizes including:
- $100 Amazon Gift Card
- Bluestone Lane Coffee prize pack
- Down Under box full of Aussie treats
No need to send in your qualification certificate for this one as we have all the information we need.
Qualified Aussie Specialists can take their Australian destination knowledge to new heights, by completing the modules put together by the eight Australian State & Territory Tourism Organizations.
Complete a new State & Territory module before May 31 to be in the running to win some incredible prizes.
If you’ve already done them all, fear not, you can do them again and you’ll be in the running. The content is updated annually, so you’ll likely learn something new.
Here are the prizes on offer:
New South Wales: Archie Rose Distillery Hand Sanitizer & pearl jewelry from Broken Bay
Victoria: Two bottles of cool climate wines from Victoria & a $50 gift card
Queensland: Original indigenous artwork from the Kuku Yalangi people

No need to send us anything, we have all the information we need.
We hope you enjoy learning more about our beautiful country.
