TTIA has developed a re-certification program to ensure the longevity, integrity, and value of receiving the Certified Tourism Executive (CTE) certification. The Re-Certification Program ensures that Certified Tourism Executives continue to remain at the forefront of industry trends and have the highest standard of industry education.
Alumni are eligible to enroll in the Re-Certification Program after two (2) full years after receiving the CTE designation. In order to keep your CTE certification current, Alumni must enroll in the Re-Certification Program and pay a re-certification fee of $95 every three (3) years. Once enrolled, Alumni may begin completing the required 40 hours of continuing education. The 40 hours can be divided up over the three years, or completed all in one year - it's up to you. The re-certification guidelines for obtaining continuing education are as follows:  
  • 25 hours must be completed (over the three year re-certification program) by attending TTIA-specific programs, such as:
    • Travel & Tourism College Alumni Program (June) - 6 credit hours

    • Webinars (several 1-hour webinars held throughout each year) - 1 credit hour per webinar
