Unit information about the SITTTSL004 training material in this resource
SITTTSL004 information from training.gov.au.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to source and provide customer information and advice relating to Australian destinations and their features. It requires the ability to identify appropriate information sources and research destinations in order to develop and update a general destination knowledge base.
Specific and detailed product knowledge is covered in SITTTSL002 Access and interpret product information.
Domestic destinations and their features can include any sold by any travel or tourism organisation. Travel and tourism operators in Australia, such as travel agents, tour wholesalers and inbound tour operators, would cover multiple Australian destinations. Visitor information centres and some tour operators would specialise in one region.
The breadth and depth of destination knowledge required will vary according to the industry sector, workplace and job role. This unit is not about having an in-depth knowledge of every destination but focuses on the ability to collect and interpret destination information.
The unit applies to frontline sales and operations personnel who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision. This includes visitor information officers, travel consultants, tour operations coordinators, inbound tour coordinators, account managers for professional conference organisers, event coordinators, tour guides, hotel guest relations officers, tour desk officers, and reservations sales agents.
