Can an already Certified Travel agent open an agency and train their own people to work for them doing bookings, etc. or would those people need to pass a certifying test first?
Is Travel agent Certification just a state of California thing?

No it is not. A number of other states require some sort of education/certification to work as a Travel Agent.

While laws change all the time, currently the following states require some form of registration and/or certification for travel agents are California, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, Oregon, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington.

So, if you working in any of these states, you will have to get any employees certified, but any other state it would seem that you can train them yourself.

Here is an link to a list of online travel agent certification courses.
