Your course. Our catalyst. Your student's future success.

For decades, the astronaut has represented the very best—the pinnacle of achievement. Astronauts are expected to combine knowledge with skill, training hard to be worthy of their roles. There have only been about 300 astronauts from North America who have visited space. The odds are certainly stacked against that career path.

Other career paths can also be challenging, including working in the tourism industry. Your role as an educator is to guide them on the path to success; to help them learn, so they graduate and find great jobs. We share that same goal.

We don't just want your students to get jobs—we want them to hit the ground running, with confidence, knowledge and practical skills they can use immediately.

Emerit helps convert average performers into high performers. After working with dozens of colleges, we know that our programming can fit seamlessly into your own course curriculum. Instructor Guides are tailored for those providing in-class training. SPARK: The Tourism Educator Resource Guide outlines how to develop or adapt curriculum to be industry responsive while emphasizing quality assurance.
