Introducing the Asilia Academy
The Asilia Academy is an e-learning programme, carefully designed by experienced Africa specialists, with the aim of training our trade partners who DMC with Asilia how to sell East Africa confidently.
The writers of Asilia Academy have all worked in direct sales in the past and know exactly what skills and information is needed to sell trips to East Africa effectively. Our hope is that with access to this type of resource, you - our agent partners - can quickly and efficiently increase your product knowledge.
The more experienced consultants will be able to brush up on the finer details of safari planning in East Africa, while anyone just starting out on selling East Africa, or cross selling from Southern Africa, will have all the necessary tools to get up to speed quickly. Best of all, it’s completely free to use.
How does it work?
There are three levels - Cheetah, Leopard & Lion - and each level is made up of a number of courses. Cheetah has 8 courses, Leopard has 8 courses and Lion has 12 courses. These courses are broken down into easy to digest modules, which all need to be completed one after the other. Asilia Academy has been specifically designed so that the content becomes more detailed and specialized as you progress.
At the end of each course you will need to take a short quiz to test what you have learnt in that course. You need at least an 80% pass mark in the quizzes to move onto the next course and continue your learning.
Each time you complete a course you will be sent a digital accreditation which can be used on email signatures and/or websites. These digital accreditations can be hyperlinked to the Asilia Academy web page which explains to potential clients how many hours you have invested in learning/research and assures clients that Asilia Africa consider those partners who have completed this course to be true Asilia experts. You will also be able to link your digital certificates to your LinkedIn profile.
