Ages ago, I went to Travel Agent School. It was a huge waste of money, but not time. I never got a job in the industry, which would have largey involved me whoring myself as a sales-person over the phone and/or booking calls as part of a call centre. In both cases, anyone with reasonable computer skills could have learned how to do those things without spending $3K for a 3-6 month course.That being said, I met some nice people and had fun.Spend time researching the true requirements at a place you'd like to work. Maybe even go to that place and approach HR to get more info and, perhaps, ararnge an internship. At very least, ask what kind of accreditation is required and what "colleges" are legit.

So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look west, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark, that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back." —Raoul Duke, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
