Who We Are
Education SystemsLLC was officially established in 1992 but had its beginnings in 1981. In the early 1980's Sharon Scott, CTC, founder of Education Systems, became director of a proprietary school. During her tenure as manager of Clark's Travel Systems, Sharon spearheaded expansion of the single proprietary school to include a series of travel schools in the intermountain area and as far west as Honolulu. During this time Sharon also began helping travel agencies throughout the country establish travel schools in their locations.
Program growth was phenomenal and Murdock Travel, in Salt Lake City, saw the potential of Clark's Travel Systems and purchased it in 1985. Sharon was immediately hired to direct the operations of this growing concern. In 1987 Sharon and her staff began assisting colleges and universities in setting up travel and tourism programs and/or subcontracting to operate travel and tourism departments for colleges. During this time they continued to operate proprietary travel schools.
In 1992, Sharon Scott moved the training program from an intra-prenurial part of Murdock Travel to an entrepreneurial venture, naming the new company Education Systems. Under its new name, Education Systems continued publishing instructional materials for its own schools - proprietary and collegiate; for its existing customers and for hundreds of new customers seeking quality training materials. New products, such as the set of Destination Geography books by Gerald Fuller, CTC, and Corporate Travel Management by James M. Poynter, were introduced, followed by Reservations Training Systems Software - APOLLO® and Sabre®, for both the United States and Canada.
After the events of 9/11 Education Systems pushed to develop an online presence. Using their proven training materials they developed a suite of self-paced, online training courses. These courses have provided a valuable stepping stone for many entering the travel and tourism industry.
For the past twenty years, Education Systems has focused on and specialized in online training and resources. These include TravelCampus, our online travel school and TripItineraries, an information and resource site for use when making travel arrangements. Education Systems has been marketing its complete travel career training course nationwide. We have trained travel departments in private companies, airline, hotel, car rental and travel agency personnel, presented workshops for ASTA, The National Academy Foundation (NAF), International Society of Travel and Tourism Educators (ISTTE), consulted with secondary schools, colleges and proprietary schools and much more.
With our expertise in online training, Education Systems has contracted with secondary schools and travel companies to create and adapt training and coursework to an online environment. Whether it is a college course on event planning or an industry standard training on billing and settlement, Education Systems can create the appropriate registration protocol, classroom environment and assessment package to meet your training needs.
