A class of 40 new tour guides graduated on Friday, May 20th, at the Rafael Angel Nu´┐Żez Auditorium. The program offered at the San Pedro Junior College and supported by the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) ended with a short ceremony where candidates received their certificates. The new graduates can now apply for their tour guide license to start their guiding career officially.

The ceremony started at 7PM with the invocation led by Pastor Clive Welsh. Afterward, instructor Philip 'Billy' Leslie delivered some remarks congratulating students. "It is a job; please take it and do it well," said Leslie. He wished them the best as they join the tour guiding force in the country's robust tourism industry. Leslie also stated that there would be training for those tour guides who have a license to ensure everyone is on the same page and follows the same guidelines. Leslie emphasized the importance of doing the job well to keep customers spreading the word about Belize and keep returning as well.
