Level 2 Award in the Sabre System

Sabre's own official training course using its own highly respected Global Distribution System, complete with certification from Sabre and the Guild of Travel Management Companies.


Programme overview

The Sabre/GTMC GDS course gives access to Sabre's own training programme, which is used in the travel industry, and therefore continuously updated.

As such, it is delivered via Sabre's own on-line training system and on successful completion the resulting professional qualification carries Sabre's full endorsement.

The backing of the Guild of Travel Management Companies (who represent the UK's business travel companies with a combined turnover in excess of £7 billion) ensures that this qualification carries real weight.

This Sabre course equips you with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the Sabre GDS, combining practical exercises with creating, retaining, retrieving and amending complex travel itineraries.

You will be working on the system, creating bookings and working through planned sessions. Each session will take you through the processes and entries used.

Because the course is delivered via the internet it means there is no complex set-up or preliminary system installation, just a simple log-in procedure instead.

The course can be done within 50 hours. All the study material is provided and once the exam is completed and passed, a certificate is issued.
