Sandals releases dates for Western Canada workshops

Sandals releases dates for Western Canada workshops

Online registration is now open for Sandals Resorts’ Canadian series of Certified Sandals Specialist workshops which take place across the country May through September 2019. 

With 12 stops in Western Canada, Sandals invites agents to “take the keys” and lock in more bookings than ever before.

Key product updates

During the fast-paced, concise sessions, agents will receive key product updates, key selling strategies, key tips and more key information they need to sell Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts. 

The workshops also fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirement for agents already holding CSS status.

All workshops in Western Canada are scheduled in the morning (7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) and include breakfast.

ACTA approved

In addition, the Sandals workshops are ACTA approved. Each travel agent or manager who completes a workshop receives 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation.

Space is limited and agents are encouraged to register early.

A non-refundable fee of $40 is required at time of registration. All participants will receive a 2019 workbook manual (which serves as an excellent resource guide), a 2019 CSS certificate (to show off and post on social media) as well as a supply of the newest collateral materials.

Agents can register online at and contact their local Business Development Manager or Inside Sales  1-800-545-8283 or  416-223-0028 for any additional information.
