Industry Partner Training

CLIA Industry Partner Training


CLIA’s Global Cruise Line and Executive Partner Members have partnered together with us to offer CLIA Certification elective credits for Individual Agents Members who complete these programs. Individual Agents Members that are enrolled in the Accredited Cruise Counsellor (ACC), Master Cruise Counsellor (MCC) or Elite Cruise Counsellor (ECC) programs, can earn elective credits by completing the programs listed. The Individual Agent Member will need to provide the Certificate for the completed training when they submit their Certification requirements. We will be adding more CLIA Global Cruise Line and Executive Partner Members to this list as they come on board, so check back regularly for updates. For questions about credits for these and other industry training programs; or CLIA’s Certifications, contact CLIA’s Professional Development Team at training@cruising.org or 202-292-4840.
