Tassie Specialist Training Modules

Thanks for showing an interest in our Tassie Specialist Program and taking the first steps to becoming a Tassie Specialist.

We're looking for people who care about the kinds of holidays they plan for their clients, who have a thirst for knowledge and who feel that if you put in the hard yards you should get something in return for your commitment.

In short, we're looking for committed domestic travel sellers and inbound tour operators who want to increase their understanding of Tasmania, and we’d like to reward you for making the effort.

Note: The Tassie Specialist program is only available to Australian based travel sellers. If you are an internationally based travel seller we recommend you complete the Aussie Specialist Program offered online by Tourism Australia.
