ITMI TOUR GUIDE SCHOOL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
We have found that the most successful applicants are those who exhibit maturity, possess a genuine interest and skill in working with groups of people and have a passion for travel. Proficiency in a foreign language is desirable but not a prerequisite for admission. All applicants must have at least a High School diploma or its equivalent or a successful business background.
To apply for admission to the ITMI certification program, please complete the on-line application form. This helps us to learn more about you and your goals and aspirations. It also includes questions about your employment history, skills and life experiences. This first step in the screening process helps us to determine whether you possess the aptitude necessary to succeed in the travel and tourism industry.
The second step is a 30 to 45 minute telephone or in-person conversation/interview with an ITMI instructor, to answer all your questions about tour directing and the Institute. This enables the instructor to gain an understanding of your communication skills, enthusiasm, sense of humor, creativity and your desire to pursue a career as a tour director or guide.
Applicants must receive a minimum score of 70 (100 maximum) on the prospective tour director and tour guide evaluation, during the personal interview.
Please note: ITMI has not entered nor intends to enter into a matriculation or transfer agreement with any college or university.
For students admitted from other countries ITMI, will verify student status with no associated charges. ITMI does not provide Visa services.
