Unit information about the SITTTSL001 training material in this resource

SITTTSL001 information from


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to operate an online information system to source information for various operational purposes. It requires the ability to identify information requirements and locate, check and download information.

The unit applies to any tourism, travel, hospitality, or events industry sector. The online system used will vary according to the organisation and industry sector but can include the internet, and any internal or external information database.

This unit mainly applies to frontline sales and operations personnel who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision. It does, however, describe a basic operational function of minimal complexity and those individuals who work with very little independence under close supervision would also use this skill.

This includes visitor information officers, travel consultants, tour coordinators, account managers for professional conference organisers, event coordinators, tour guides, hotel guest relations officers, tour desk officers, and reservation sales agents.
