Abu Dhabi launches e-learning platform

The Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism has launched an e-learning platform to educate travel agents.

The Abu Dhabi Specialist Programme features destination-related information about the emirate through a series of online courses.

The first phase went live on May 4 in the UK and Ireland and is designed specifically for industry partners such as tour operators, travel agents and wholesalers.

The Abu Dhabi Specialist Programme is designed to equip travel trade professionals with accurate and relevant information about Abu Dhabi, supporting and encouraging them to promote the destination to consumers within their markets.

“The Abu Dhabi Specialist Programme is a significant step forward and through it we will be able to reach a larger number of travel trade agents across the globe, including previously untapped markets like Canada and New Zealand,” said HE Saood Al Hosani, acting undersecretary at DCT Abu Dhabi. “This training and education platform ensures that all participating industry partners have easy and quick access to the latest content on Abu Dhabi, thus making the destination promotion aspect of their job much easier.”

The Abu Dhabi Specialist Programme is now available for travel trade professionals in the UK and Ireland on abudhabispecialist.com.
