The Certified Culinary Travel Professional (CCTP) was founded in 2008 and was our industry's oldest oldest program to certify experts in the culinary travel. The program was updated each year to incorporate new trends, data and examples, to keep content fresh and relevant. The CCTP program was retired in mid-2018 to make room for our new Masterclass series and Master Culinary Travel Professional program. Today's MCTP is based on the original CCTP program, and is designed to meet the needs and learning goals of learners today.
