I worked really hard to attain this certification. CLIA stands for Cruise Line International Association.
"CLIA's certification program graduates are widely recognized as the foremost cruise vacation experts among North American travel agents. By achieving certification, you have joined the elite group of cruise industry professionals."
To receive this achievement, I had to have:
*40 CLIA credits in person or online training (I did most in person while I was at a CLIA event in Florida for a week);
*80 Elective credits with cruise lines, hotels and destinations;
*5 ship inspections which I did 4 in person with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity and 1 virtual with Holland;
*Have personally sailed on 2 different itineraries (Eastern and Western);
*20 staterooms sold on CLIA member cruise lines.
I CANNOT WAIT TO START CRUISING AGAIN!!
