Montreal, November 5, 2020 – Today, Transat Distribution Canada (TDC), the largest full-service travel agency network in the country, announced the launch of TDC Campus, the most complete training program best adapted to the travel world. As of today, all TDC network members, whether they are franchisees or part of our agent@home program, will have access to more than 20 hours of bilingual content for a free 6-month trial period.
“At TDC, we’re always on the lookout for the most effective solutions that reflect the reality of our members, to be proactive and support them in achieving their business objectives as best we can,” explained Louise Fecteau, General Manager of Transat Distribution Canada. "We know that people will start travelling again in greater numbers, but it is difficult to know at this point when the recovery will take place. That's why we believe there is no better time to equip our members with this online training platform, divided into four faculties and adapted to the needs of senior consultants as well as those new to the industry. TDC Campus makes things easy for travel professionals who need to know a tremendous amount of information in detail, thanks to its fun and effective content. It is available online at all times, in a responsive display, which adapts to the size of the screen used," she concludes.
An innovative approach to training
“In one single platform, TDC Campus consolidates everything that, in my opinion, makes training programs effective,” added Julie Bilodeau, Director of Organizational Development and Training at Transat. “When we develop a training at Transat, we put ourselves in the learners’ shoes and want to make sure they’re engaged. We want them to put their knowledge and expertise to use and feel stimulated, so that they remain interested. And with the expansion of TDC Campus, the training approaches – simulations, videos, interactive guides, quizzes, etc. – have something for every learner,” she continued.
“In fact, every travel professional or future travel professional who accesses TDC Campus will notice that the different modules are, more often than not, presented in a storytelling style, with a tone that’s playful and never too formal, and a micro-learning approach focused on one subject at a time, to ensure the user retains the information,” concluded Julie Bilodeau.
