Members of FRHI Hotels & Resorts’ Famous Agents program already enjoy a comprehensive education and rewards system, but now they’re set to learn more and earn more through the creation of the Famous Agents Academy. FRHI, the leading operator of Raffles Hotels & Resorts, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts, has enhanced its program to further travel agents’ understanding of its three distinctive hotel brands and the unique guest experiences each has to offer.

Member agents eager to learn more about these leading global hotel brands now have the opportunity to take online courses and earn bonus Famous Agents points, which can later be redeemed for free room nights and other attractive rewards.  The Famous Agents Academy has been developed in conjunction with and is accredited by Travel Agent University, moderator of online courses for agents and the largest professional travel community in the industry. Upon successfully passing each module, members will receive both course credit with Travel Agent University as well as bonus Famous Agents points. The number of credits and points earned will vary from course to course.

To enroll and begin, agents can sign in at and follow the Famous Agents Academy link on the homepage. As an additional incentive, members can earn 15 bonus points* for completing the first module. Agents can choose from a variety of courses and material can be covered at their own pace. Courses will be updated on an ongoing basis to ensure material is current and engaging, so member agents are encouraged to “check-in” to refresh their FRHI knowledge.
