Professionals from across the spectrum of human resources, procurement, finance and administration are taking on the role of corporate travel management in many organizations. Adapting to the constant evolution of corporate travel plays a large role in the success of your travel program. That’s why in 2017, Fox World Travel launched our Travel Manager Institute, re-launched in 2019 as the Fox Professional Travel Certification (FPTC), designed to help travel professionals from various backgrounds and experience levels keep pace with an ever-changing and sometimes complicated industry. Now, the as the number of travel managers from diverse backgrounds continues to increase, and as travel manager responsibilities take on new meaning during the COVID-19 pandemic, FPTC is even more important, and we are excited to announce our fall 2021 session is open for registration.
“Our clients and the industry are looking for the resources they need to recover or get back to travel,” said Kelly Holtmeier, Fox’s learning & development manager. “One of our highest priorities at Fox is to be an advocate and resource for our clients and the travel industry. The Fox Professional Travel Certification was created out of that passion and continues to grow and adapt to ever-changing needs.”
Now in its fifth year, FPTC empowers travel managers with the knowledge and tools to best navigate the initiatives unique to their programs. FPTC was created with corporate travel organizers in mind and is instructed completely by Fox subject matter experts. Our virtual, live, interactive offering provides opportunities to grown and learn from Fox experts as well as other course attendees, setting it apart from other recorded trainings.
The course provides a comprehensive view on how to navigate your managed travel program with ease so you can excel in your role. New additions to the course will be centered around navigating the post-COVID-19 travel landscape as well as unused tickets and sustainable business travel.
“Being new to the travel industry, I felt this course has prepared me to do my job better each day by giving me the tools necessary to understand and navigate the field. Listening to others’ personal and organizational experiences in the industry gave me much more insight into the larger picture of what I do day to day. I definitely believe I am better equipped to advocate for travel policy and to support my organization’s travelers after having taken this course.”
“This course is perfect for travel managers looking to update and improve their company travel policy, or individuals who are just starting out in a travel management role. The open discussion layout of the course means you are able to learn a lot from not only the instructors, but other travel managers in the class. You are able to walk away from this class with improved confidence and high knowledge of travel policy and management.”
“This course provided an excellent overview of the major travel industry topics. I left with a renewed purpose to continue to improve our traveler experience and our efforts to educate our travelers on things they should do around safety & security before they go.”
Across surveys from the past five years of FPTC graduates, 100% of attendees from previous sessions said they would recommend the course to another travel manager.
At Fox, we know that even though travel may have slowed for your organization since the COVID-19 pandemic, there might be more on your plate and more questions regarding your program than ever. We continue to analyze ways to empower those managing travel programs and to arm and support travel managers in these times of change.
FPTC was created based on client feedback and a demand for travel industry education. Fox is known for our commitment to education, and through this course we are here to support you.
