South African Tourism’s  SA Specialist programme is one of many online programmes South Africans are being encouraged to do while working from home during the lockdown.

It is a free module-based online learning experience for anyone who wants to become an authority on South Africa and its attractions, to better sell the country as a holiday destination.

SA Specialist: Essentials is a 90-day course with four compulsory and three elective modules, and a final assessment to qualify as an SA Specialist.

Upon completion, graduates receive a branded certificate and can market themselves as a South African Travel Expert, joining over 18 000 other graduates.

Those who complete the Essentials course can register for the SA Specialist: Experiences course, which exposes students to a series of South African experiences. There’s no time limit on this course.

With domestic tourism being the focus for the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic, this course is an opportunity for everyone to improve their level of service for current and future clients and to increase business opportunities.
