A Tour Director is a representative of a Tour Company who provides the guest with the experience of a lifetime. While a Tour Guide is an expert in one particular area, a Tour Director is in charge of a group of people throughout a multi-day experience and is a master of many trades. Tour Directors wear many hats and have quite a few skills to perfect. That is exactly what this training experience is all about! Upon completion of the ITMI Tour Guide Certification training, you will be ready to take your skills to the next level and get hired to lead groups to multiple destinations.
Similarly to how you begin your ITMI Tour Guide Certification course, you will receive access to the online and resource portals where we will introduce essential concepts through lessons, training videos, interviews, articles, assignments and more.
We learn by doing! The class has components to be viewed prior to the Online class. Our online classes will have an assignment where we will APPLY what was learned in Tour Guide Certification, and the pre-work of Tour Director. It is important to have a solid foundation to build upon.
Three weeks before your In-Person Field Training, we will begin live online classes. You will be working together with your instructors and peers to plan commentary and logistics of the Field Training experience. You will also have a post class on the intricacies of international tours and get started with our career launch pad during another online session.
