How does one become an independent travel agent?

How does a person become an independent travel agent?

I am looking for the following information:

General cost of courses
Length of courses
The amount of money (generally) a travel agent makes yearly
Is there a high and low season for travel agents?
When you are independent, do you work through an established agency for a fee?

Last but not least, if you have any websites that go into good detail, that would be helpful. My husband brought it up and I'm checking it out. Thanks.

All you have to do is go to your college.  You can get either a diploma or a degree, but a degree will better help you to achieve this.  I am a travel agent and I graduated in December with my degree.  It takes about 2 years, depending on how much time you put into it and how many classes you take.  If you want to, you can try to do it between 6 months and a year if you can, but it will be very hard.  It will cost you about $10,000 for everything, tuition, books, classes everything.  Apply for scholarships, especially if you had great grades in high school.  I kept a 4.0 GPA throughout my academic history, and scholarships and grants got me through college and whatever was left over was like a gift, to do as you wish with.  I must have gotten refunds of up to $3000 in that first year.  It's easy, just apply for Financial Aid.  Good luck and I wish you well.  You can do it.  If I was able to, you most certainly can.
