The Institute accredits Tourist Guide training programmes. It does not run training courses, these are generally organised by local tourist guide associations, specific sites or other local organisations in response to demand for new guides in their specific areas.
These courses are open to all applicants. You do not need previous guiding experience or qualifications.
Only Institute-accredited courses are listed. Click on the course name for further details.
