Adult Fall 2020 - Summer 2021
The recent pandemic has shown us that we need a greater focus on pre-departure preparedness when planning overseas travel. Travelers need to know how to research where they might want to go and how to be more prepared should something happen while traveling. Even seasoned travelers miss the many hidden risks associated with world travel. Depart Smart created the award-winning Travel HEROES™ Safety Certification Course. This course is fun, interactive and has loads of important information. It helps travelers build personalized travel safety plans for their travels abroad. It includes learning:
- The known risks of a destination
- Local laws and customs, emergency numbers
- How and when the US embassy helps
- How to avoid dangerous diseases and waterborne illnesses
- How to vet out travel insurance and why it’s needed
- How to transfer critical health info into local languages
- And much more.
The course empowers travelers by discussing the importance of travel safety awareness and guiding participants through the Travel HEROES course. Participants will build their own personalized travel safety plan. For students planning a trip abroad, we encourage students and a parent/guardian to attend the session together to build a safety plan. We encourage the same for couples planning on traveling together.
