What you will learn

The main objective of the course is to help receptive agents and tour guides to broaden their professional horizons, while positioning themselves in a very attractive niche market characterised by the absence of seasonality, high stability and excellence. This is achieved through synergy of the experience, training and, in general, knowledge that the guide has acquired and put into practice, together with the specialisation in governmental and institutional travel.

As experts in the place, territory or country in question, as well as its culture, places of interest, main landmarks, access, communications, etc., the guides and receptive staff who are trained in the GITT sector, are positioned as the perfect figure for this type of work, highly demanded and valued by this type of delegations.

In the course you will receive training oriented to work, with full guarantees, together with governmental and institutional delegations. This is achieved through the training and implementation of a series of extraordinary and exclusive concepts and knowledge of the GITT sector, which include important matters such as security, protocol, confidentiality or logistics, among many other aspects.
