METHOD OF INSTRUCTION
ITMI believes in the successful team teaching method of instruction. You will have the opportunity to learn from at least three professional tour director instructors. You will become acquainted with your instructors, which enables you to work with them, both during the class and after you graduate.
ITMI and travel industry professionals agree that on-line learning plus classroom instruction are not enough to gain the knowledge necessary to achieve success, it must be combined with professionally led, hands-on field experience. ITMI offers the most comprehensive classroom and field experience in the industry.
ITMI will assist you in preparing a special one-page tour director résumé, which will be completed prior to the end of the course. We realize that beginning a new lifestyle can feel stressful and the interview process may seem daunting. Therefore, we have dedicated one segment of the course to interview technique role playing, to ensure that you are familiar with the potential questions that the tour operators may ask.
After successful completion of the course and graduation, a one-hour individual follow-up strategy session will be conducted with two of your primary instructors to discuss your overall performance in the course. During this important one-on-one consulting session your instructors will help you to define your immediate and long term goals, share feed-back from the course, and determine which tour operators will best meet your goals. (To be scheduled individually.)
