Tour Guiding Course Holmesglen Institute February

TOUR GUIDING COURSE
9 Feb – 14 April 2016
Holmesglen Institute, City Campus

Melbourne has been rated the world’s most liveable city for five years in a row and with its famous laneways and coffee culture it continues to be an aspirational destination for tourists from around the world. Tourism remains one of the most important industries in our state’s economy and continues to grow.

Last year Melbourne had its busiest inbound cruise season on record, with one cruise ship arriving per day during the peak season, which is scheduled to be repeated this year. Tour guides were in strong demand in 2016 to show cruise passengers and other travellers around the many tourism attractions both within Melbourne and in regional Victoria.

This skill set program will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to facilitate local and regional tours while giving you nationally accredited units of competencies. You will be involved with Meet & Greeting clients at the airport, leading a coach tour with colleagues and conducting your own walking tour through the streets of Melbourne.

Whilst updating your knowledge of Melbourne and Victoria, you will learn how to effectively manage and entertain a tour group and provide them with first-rate commentary.

The program will be delivered at the Holmesglen city campus on St Kilda Road – across from the Shrine of Remembrance, with a number of off-campus activities including a full day excursion and is taught by leading well-connected tour guiding professionals who are currently working in the industry. The course will be run over 8 weeks, 8 hours per week on TUE and THU evenings from 5.30 – 9.30 pm from TUE 2 February, 2016.  Pls see the Holmesglen website www.holmesglen.edu.au to see costs and registration details.

Costs start around $200 if you have a health card and no previous course qualifications.

Special discounted full fee rate of $1190 plus activity fees instead of $1890 may be available to students who enroll for this semester course.
