For many years, we ran a partnership with The Travel Channel called
Travel Channel Academy.  We trained more than 3,000 people to become
travel video journalists - so we know this business pretty well!

Unfortunately, when The Travel Channel was sold to Scripps, they decided not to continue with The Academy.  But we’ve taken all the knowledge that we acquired during those years, and in our partnership with The Travel Channel and turned them into our video courses.

If you’d like to become a Travel Journalist working in video,
you can’t get better training than here.

No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
