Below is a Testimony from a YTB Agent, on my team. Read it and click on the links, and explore
We would like to share this information with you, so that you can perhaps share it with the members of your team. Just another one of the amazing "Industry Perks" that we have received since joining YTB. Gloria and I are so happy to inform you that we have completed the One Source Academy, Princess Cruise Course.
We signed up for FREE and started taking the 25 hour online study course. We stayed with it, in our spare time for about 3 or 4 days, working our way up the ranks as we went along. Each subject was followed by a 20 question quiz, which was not really hard, as long as you take take good notes. Upon completion, we then took a 50 question final exam, which put us at Commodore Level.
Subsequent to getting that status, we were offered A FREE CRUISE FOR TWO! The offer is valid and does not expire until we actually take the trip. We checked out the upcoming available trips and we couldn't believe our eyes. The trips ranged from 12 to 21 days, depending on the destination. The destinations were Europe, South America, Panama Canal, Asia and Alaska. and were normally very expensive. All that we need to do is keep checking the site until we find a cruise that suits our schedule, whether it is this week, or 2 years from now. NOT A BAD PAYOUT FOR 25 HOURS OF OUR LIFE!
We hope that all of your current and future members opt to take this course as we have. Next it's on to the Cunard Cruise lines Course, which offers the same exact program. ANOTHER 25 HOURS WELL SPENT, I'M SURE!
