“There’s nothing else quite like TripSchool.”

We love our grads, and the feedback they give. There’s only so much we can say to convince you to try one of our classes. But, hopefully the enthusiasm of our graduates helps you understand how TripSchool is different! We never solicit endorsements, but we love to share the praise we receive.

“I want to send a huge thank you to Mitch and Alan for your wisdom and support. TripSchool is the best decision I’ve ever made (and you can make if you are trying to get into the travel industry). The information received left me excited, some left me scared, some made me cry, but we always had laughs. You guys are beyond amazing!”

-Amber Peterson

“Thank you Mitch Bach and Alan Armijo for an unforgettable experience on your MegaTraining! You are both at the top of your game and offer us so much more than the basic where to go and how to get there!!! Your passion and enthusiasm for the industry is unsurpassable, and your energy is infectious!! Thank you for sharing all your secrets and not keeping them to yourselves. I am so grateful and privileged to be a part of such a wonderful community.”

-Shelba Bell
