Train to become a guide

More and more tour guides are being trained through excellent Cert III and Cert IV courses at TAFE colleges across Australia – the minimum is a Cert III.

A number of Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) are approved to conduct these courses throughout Australia.

Details are listed on the Federal Government Training.
