|Description:||The Professional Tour Manager Certification Course is comprised of 36 hours of in-class study and three days touring on a motorcoach practicing newly learned skills. The objective is to train those who are interested in tour management to be professional, knowledgeable, efficient, and ethical. Anyone interested in guiding can participate in this course. It is highly interactive, providing an opportunity to learn from each other as well as the trainer. Both experienced and new Tour Managers will benefit from our new, creative approach to leading tours.
The concept of certification as a Tour Manager or Tour Guide has been in place for many years in other parts of the world. In Europe, Asia and South America a guide is often certified by a government body. Although this is not the case in Canada, there is no reason our guides can not be as good or better. This course is taught in association with Centennial College.
