Course Description

If you are interested in working in a Travel Agency or an Airline Reservation Department, this Industry endorsed qualification will help you upgrade your CV and increase your chances of gaining employment.

Once you feel confident using this Global Distribution System you will be very confident using a live GDS.

The system includes a Lesson Mode and an Emulator Mode:

Lesson Mode (student friendly): This Lesson Mode will teach you everything you will need to know on building Booking Files for your customers.

Emulator Mode (intended for Role Playing): The GDS Emulator is a subsystem that simulates a real GDS. It is programmed to accept GDS queries and generate GDS screen displays. As you work through the lessons, exercises, quizzes and drills, every GDS query that you submit is handled by an emulator in order to generate a realistic screen display. Every screen display appears exactly as it would on a real GDS.

With the click of a button, you can:

  • Interact with the Emulator directly.
  • Freely submit GDS queries and retrieve information
