Travel agent becomes SNG certified | Briefs | #specialneeds | #kids

Barbara Cimmarusti, a travel agent with Coral Reef Travels, recently received certification from Special Needs Group Inc., a global provider of special needs equipment for the travel industry, to specialize in special needs/accessible travel.

To earn the distinction, Cimmarusti participated in Special Needs Group’s in-depth online module certification program. Through the program, agents gain an understanding of the special needs/accessible travel market. They learn about the best equipment to rent for special needs travel, ways to market special needs/accessible travel and more.

Cimmarusti has worked in the travel industry for 40 years, specializing in cruises. She has traveled to more than 30 countries and sailed on over 50 cruises, in addition to many land trips.

“Through Special Needs’ courses, I not only learned how to assist individuals with special needs to enjoy travel, but I found some very valuable new ways to serve the needs of all of my clients,” Cimmarusti said. “The population, as well as the travel industry itself, has undergone major changes in the past few years. By completing this program, I have the ability to stay on the cutting edge of these changes and create opportunities for my clients.”
