Hello STUDENT, here are all the details for the TAP Test. Travel Agent campus will need the below registration information from you to schedule your TAP Test with the Travel Institute.
TAP Test - Travel Agent Proficiency Test
The TAP test or Travel Agent Proficiency is the first step towards professional recognition. Often included at the end of entry-level training programs, the test allows candidates to demonstrate that they have mastered the basics of the travel industry – selling skills, basic geography, and items/products sold by travel counselors.
TAP TEST Review Webinar Link (previously recorded)
“TAP Test Review Session” with Guida Botelho, CTA
Guida Botelho, CTA hosts this review to help TAP candidates prepare for their test. The session focuses on:
•A review of the TAP Test and the areas covered
•How to select a proctor and proctor responsibilities
Study the TCD - Travel Career Development Textbook, especially the “Check-Up” sections throughout each chapter, Chapter “Wrap-Up” sections and “Review Questions” section at the end of each chapter.
Online, 2-hour timed test, 1 try only with a proctor (retests at a later date are available for $25), must score 70% or higher to pass.
The test is a proctor* test consisting of 100 multiple-choice questions. Candidates are given two hours to complete the test.
*Proctor Requirements: A test proctor is required for this test. The proctor is someone chosen by the candidate, and their responsibility it to be sure that the candidate isn’t using any books, notes or reference materials while testing. The proctor chosen should be a) over 21, b) not related to the candidate, c) not currently preparing to take the TAP test themselves, d) currently in or from a professional career field.
Proctors must be with you during your testing and will provide the link to the test as well as the password to unlock the test.
The TAP test has a 2-hour time limit, and should be taken in one sitting. Plan a time when you won’t be disturbed for that block of time. Upon completion of your test, your test will be graded and you will be advised of your grade within 72 hours.
To ensure you have a great testing experience, here are some tips and troubleshooting information. TAKING YOUR TEST: · Before taking your Test, make sure you are in an environment where you will not be disturbed. · Your answers are saved as you submit each one, not at the end of the Test. This means you will not lose any work. · If the Test has a time limit, you will see a countdown timer at the top of each page. If you run out of Time, the Test will be finished automatically and any answers on the current page will also be submitted for you so you will not lose any work. · Avoid using the browser back button as this will not work. The Test is set to allow you to go back to Previous questions, use the “Previous” button which will be under your Questions. HOW TO AVOID BEING LOGGED OUT OF A TEST: · Stay connected to the Internet during your Test. · Do not click away from the Test until you have submitted your answers and finished the Test. · If you need to type answers, type your answers in the answer boxes under each question, not in a separate application like Microsoft Word©. TROUBLESHOOTING: · If your Test page freezes, you can always click refresh on your web browser and the Test will again load on the same Question/s you were on. Note: If you have written any long answers on the frozen page, make a copy of these answer/s first so you do not lose them. · If your Computer or Web browser has a problem or they are closed, using the same Web browser, re-open your Web browser go to the Start Link for the Test and you will be taken back to the last question you were on, where you will be able to resume your Test.
