2020 CLIA Individual Agent Membership opens in October 2019 for membership valid through December 31, 2020.

When I first started as an agent, I had no travel background except my own experiences. Through CLIA I was able to take training classes focused specifically on cruising, connect with cruise lines for certifications and naturally pursue the highest certification in the industry – Elite Cruise Counsellor. These trainings and certifications have provided me with tools to present myself to my clients as an expert in the field.
