Travel and Tourism TT is an industry which so demand certain technical skills and product knowledge.

This prospectus trains students on how to deal with different types of customers and improve their communication and interpersonal skills. Also we take students through Global Distribution System/Computerized Reservation System (GDS/CRS) knowledge: This will give the student a double advantage of gaining knowledge useful either in a travel agency or as ground staff at the airport. The CRS system is used extensively in all airlines/travel agencies and will give the student an added qualification during placements. Though there are varied occupations, there is one common denominator service. To be able to give the best service, students must have confidence and product knowledge. .
