This seminar course was designed for tourism destinations that experienced changes (or areas that suddenly became sought-after destinations) post-pandemic. Even established tourism meccas have had to pivot their offerings in this new world. This is offered as a semester-long university for-credit course. It's also offered as a 4-hour seminar, usually sponsored by officials and tourism bureaus.
This is a 4-hour Certification Course (normally $95 tuition includes instruction, AHLEI student manual, and certification exam for the online course. The live full-day class is normally $295 per student).
