WITFM - What's in it for me? I hear you ask...


  1. Customers know so much about Sri Lanka, you need to know as much or more to convince them to book with you
  2. You will get preferential invites for events and fam trips. 
  3. You may win quarterly prizes. All who have completed the course are entered. Click here to learn more. Some prizes are only valid for those who have logged their bookings. See your profile page to log bookings.
  4. You earn a certificate which you can download and print. It is valid till 31st December 2019 and you then sit the refresher module to get a one year extension. This is to bring you up to speed with changes in Sri Lanka.
The course is set up to assist UK based agents but can be used by the travel trade across the globe. Prizes are only offered to those in the UK for legal and administration reasons. 

Here is what some agents have to say :

Found it very interesting and just the right length, thank you.  I’ve been to Sri Lanka myself but not the North or East, so was interested to learn about those areas (and am now very tempted to return next year – the elephant gathering at Minneriya looks fascinating).  Sarah Martin, Travel Counsellors

The training was great and I learnt heaps about Sri Lanka making me want to visit even more! The training was informative, not boring or too long. It's one of the best online training courses I have done for keeping the attention and being easy to learn. Thanks! Zoe Jones, STA Travel

It was good to see lots of imagery and most importantly I was able to learn alot about the travelling distances between each of the core visitor attractions. It was also useful to be able to open two training sessions so I can have the quiz as well as the training modules which you can refer to when answering the questions. Some other tourist board training modules do not allow this. Steve Manley, Virgin Holidays
