The short course in VA-2 Advanced Fares and Ticketing by Virgin Atlantic has been developed by some of the travel industry’s top course writers.  These are qualifications that not only improve the promotion and employment prospects of the student, but also help build the staff skills-base that will ensure the long term continued expansion of the wider tourism and travel sectors. VA-2 has been designed to give you a thorough understanding of fare construction principles, building on your VA-1 knowledge with step by step stages of new principles of fare construction, which enables you to calculate and recognise more complex fares.
