Unit information about the SITTTVL001 training material in this resource
SITTTVL001 information from training.gov.au.
This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to access product information about travel 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 international or domestic products sold by any travel organisation. 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 travel consultants, inbound tour coordinators, reservations sales agents and owner-operators of small travel organisations.
The skills in this unit of competency must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian standards and industry codes of practice.
No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
Skills must be demonstrated in a safe environment, incorporating the use of industry-realistic simulations and scenarios where required.
Assessment must ensure access to:
- computers and information systems currently used by the tourism and travel industries
- sources of information for the tourism and travel industry
- colleagues and suppliers with whom the individual can interact. These can be:
- colleagues and suppliers in an industry workplace who are assisted by the individual during the assessment process; or
- individuals who participate in role plays or simulated activities, set up for the purpose of assessment.
Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations’ requirements for assessors and have worked in industry for at least three years where they have applied the skills and knowledge of this unit of competency.
