Would you like a career where you can work anywhere? Would you like to travel the world and get paid to do it? Do you love working with people? If this is you, our entry-level tourism course - Certificate in Travel and Tourism, is the perfect place to kick-start your journey.
"Being that OCA is a completely online campus, I looked for every reason not to do my course through them. I looked at every AAA professional provider and the people teaching the courses. In the end, of all the providers, I went with the one I least expected to. The service is beyond what any big brand campus gives you, and everything is set out so well. Huge ups to OCA for completely turning me around! I would recommend studying through OCA to anyone who wants a real advantage. Thank you!" - Jaqui
