How to get started being a home TA?

I am passionate about travel and visiting places in the world, although I have never left my country. This has been due to finances as well as my two high needs kiddos. I'm very interested in being a work from home travel agent, but am a little baffled at how exactly to go about this.

I know I need a host agency, but do I need any sort of credentials/certification BEFORE I apply to a host agency? Are there reputable Canadian companies that offer decently priced training? Are there online training/certification resources?

What about reputable Canadian [more specifically, Atlantic Canadian] agencies?

I have no formal travel or tourism experience and while there is a tourism community college course in my area, it doesn't have any focus on becoming a travel agent/counsellor.

I have wonderful computer skills, am a fast learner, very organized, have customer service experience and am also a good time manager. I don't have a LOT of sales experience, but do have some.

Eventually I'd love to be a Disney Vacation Planner! Seems like it would be so fun!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
