BTB’s New Tour Guide Training Techniques presented to SP Tour Guide Association

The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) joined the San Pedro’s Tour Guide Association at an informative meeting held at the San Pedro Lions Den on Wednesday, November 13th. The main topic of the evening was a professional tour guide training program facilitated by BTB, which will be a mandatory requirement for every tour guide. The meeting also saw a new set of tour guide graduates receiving their certificates of completion.

BTB’s Director for Quality Assurance and Industry Standard Herbert Haylock addressed a packed Lions Den discussing the new components of the training program. “We bring the communication component which deals with the tour briefing and debriefing, and the tour methodology which looks at the organization and entertainment value of the information,” said Haylock. Such new components will be part of future training, playing an integral part in a tour guide’s profile. All tour guides are now required to take this course when they apply for a new license or renewing. Haylock told the gathering that this is another opportunity being offered to gain additional capacities and skills while enhancing their ability to be able to deliver their services.

No info in the article about dates, location or even the title of the mandatory course the BTB is demanding of the Tour Guides for license renewal...Tourguide licences expire July 31st 2020.
From January to August is busy season for guides, let's hope they are considerate and offer the course at night so working tour guides can attend.
