As Israel celebrates its 75th Independence Day, the anniversary of its nationhood, the Israel Ministry of Tourism has announced a new Destination Specialist Program, according to a press release issued Tuesday (May 9).

Now live on the Travel Agent Academy, the program educates travel trade members about Israel as a destination, providing specializations in faith based, multigenerational, heritage, and outdoor/adventure travel. 

It also provides sellers with culinary and cultural tours and itineraries, showcasing the rich diversity of experiences available in the nation from water adventures and Dead Sea tourism to local cuisine and UNESCO heritage sites.

The courses include information for those not familiar with Israel, but will also enrich those already selling the destination or who want to learn more about Israel. 

The destination program also qualifies advisors for up to four (4) continuing education units (CEU) through The Travel Institute.

The program joins a brand-new industry-focused website offering information about Israel's regions, its tour guides, tour operators, hotels, specialty topics and much more.
