It’s easy to say that education is the key to success, but we actually live that philosophy. Our program works best when you maximize its potential so we’ve developed an award-winning, multi-level training program based on a simple principle: stellar education directly links to superior earnings. And that’s our goal for you.
It’s not just about sales, however. At OA, we believe in a higher purpose for education… relationships. The more knowledge you have in the industry, the better the relationships you’ll have with your clients. They will return from their unforgettable vacations satisfied, ready for their next adventure and that’s a win for everyone.
The Learning Management System
Outside Agents offers an exclusive on-demand learning library to walk you through anything you want to know about travel, from our technology, to marketing groups, to selling luxury cruises. Our lessons are brief and concise, making the process efficient. Because they’ve been developed this way, our agents aren’t overwhelmed with hours of video. Instead, they can open our online training library and quickly find the specific subject they need.
Personal onboarding coach
When starting with a new company it can be a bit overwhelming, even for seasoned agents. Our onboarding team is by your side to make sure you are prepared and off to a good start.
Sometimes direct instruction is the most comfortable way to learn, but sometimes the issue isn’t a general topic learned in a class environment. For this, we have our one-on-one mentoring sessions. Once you’re up and running with the basics behind you, one-on-one is there to navigate the bumps!
Discussion boards, Facebook Groups and online chat
Our active community of more than 5000 agents is an excellent way to connect. OA maintains a private Facebook group, live chat and discussion boards so agents can come together and share ideas, get help and make lasting relationships.
We all have our own best way of learning. For some, it’s a hands-on approach. Others prefer face-to-face interaction. Then there are people who are always thirsty for more in any form. Regardless, we get it, and we strive to meet all those needs by offering a host of training options to suit everyone.
