Will the new MCTP program affect my CCTP designation?
If you graduated from our Certified Culinary Travel Professional (CCTP) program at some point since the program began in 2008, there is no need to worry. Your CCTP designation and credentials will be preserved, maintained and honored by our Association indefinitely. Our new Master Culinary Travel Professional (MCTP) program is different from the CCTP because it is a much more in-depth and customized learning experience. In many ways, the MCTP is a cost-effective and time-sensitive Master's program in culinary travel. You can save months, if not years, of your time, and thousands of dollars/euros/pounds by choosing our MCTP program over other food travel learning experiences available today. After all, we founded the food tourism industry. Why not learn from our industry's first and best-respected food tourism educational organization?
If you completed the CCTP previously and wish to upgrade and enroll in the MCTP program, please submit a support ticket above and we'll give you US$500 off your enrollment in the new MCTP program. Just get in touch to ask for the discount. You'll need your graduation date or past CCTP logo as evidence of your CCTP course completion.
