Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Los Medanos College Travel Marketing program is to prepare students for employment in the travel industry by educating them in fundamental travel concepts, technology tools and research skills, excellent customer service, and application of information and skills to real-world travel situations. We strive to foster student preparedness through innovative course content; by providing opportunities for interaction between fellow students, instructors, and industry professionals; and by encouraging and supporting individual goals.
What’s in it for me?
The Travel Marketing program will provide you with practical information as well as the opportunity to apply what you are learning in realistic scenarios and case studies.
The LMC Travel Marketing program is a member of ASTA and The Travel Institute, and we have an active Advisory Board made up of seasoned travel professionals with years of experience in the industry. Since our travel courses are online, you will have the opportunity to “meet” and network with other like-minded classmates and travel professionals from a wide variety of locations. Indeed, the online format literally opens up a world of experiences!
One of our graduates, in an interview for TravelMarket Report (August 10, 2018), had this to say about the LMC Travel Marketing Program: “Classes were taught by the most dedicated and thorough instructors, who instilled an obligation to professionalism in each of us,” said Lu Maggiora of Travel by Lu. "Industry professionals and agency owners served on the board of the program, speakers came in regularly, and the curriculum covered every aspect of the travel industry. To this day, many of my great friends in the industry have come out of the Los Medanos program.”
“ Our program and its instructors are sensitive to the changing needs of travel professionals. The ability to evolve and adapt is, in my opinion, the major strength of our well-respected program.”
