New Level 3 Certificate dates available now!

Posted on 07/02/2024 by

Our course dates are filling up, so we added a new one! Here’s some of the crew from Christmas last year.

The New Zealand Certificate in Tourism with a strand in Tourism and Travel Level 3 is one of our most popular course options.

It’s a fantastic entry-level course for anyone looking to take their first step into a career in travel and tourism, and it covers all the basic information you’ll need to work in a variety of roles, from hotel jobs to flight attending, travel agencies to airports.

This qualification is so popular, in fact, that the next start date on February 12 for the Auckland City Campus is already completely full. That’s why we’ve announced another intake for this course at the Auckland City Campus, which will start on March 11 (and is already starting to fill up!).
