Unit information about the SITTTSL002 training material in this resource

SITTTSL002 information from


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to access product information on tourism, travel, hospitality, or events products to fulfil sales or operational needs. It requires the ability to identify sources of information and to interpret specific details of the products.

The product can include any international or domestic product sold by any tourism, travel, hospitality, or events business. The breadth and depth of product knowledge and its application will vary according to the industry sector, workplace and job role. This unit is not about having an in-depth knowledge of products, but focuses on the ability to source and interpret information.

The 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 fundamental operational function and those individuals who work with very little independence under close supervision would also use this skill.

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

Personnel selling travel insurance to a client must meet the requirements of the Financial Services Reform Act (2001).
