Be Part of the Solution: ITMI’s Critical Training to Combat Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a horrific crime that affects over 40 million people worldwide. From forced labor to sex trafficking, modern slavery generates over $150 billion in illicit profits every year. Many victims are lured by false promises of good jobs or better lives, while others are abducted and sold into bondage. This egregious abuse of human rights happens globally, even in developed countries like the United States.

To combat this issue, the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) https://itmitourtraining.com/ offers a powerful for e-course on human trafficking designed specifically for travel and tourism professionals. ITMI was the first school of its kind to offer this curriculum within its training program to become a certified tour director / guide.

With over 1 billion people traveling internationally each year, those working in the travel industry are uniquely positioned to spot and stop trafficking activities. By taking ITMI’s course, an individual learns how traffickers operate, how to identify victims, and how to safely intervene and connect them to help.
