We support the operation of 'Azumino City Certified Guide Interpreter Training Course 2022.' The entire curriculum of the City Guide course will come to an end on Sunday, July 10. This training course, based in Azumino City, trains adventure travel (AT) guides with world-class guiding skills and English communication skills.
There are two types of guides: City Guide and Hiking Guide. City guide course is a curriculum to develop base common skills as an AT guide. Hiking guide course is a curriculum that develops specialized Hiking skills in addition to the common skills of the City guide. To meet global standards, we follow the Adventure Travel Guide Standards (ATGS) published by the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), the world's leading adventure travel promotion organization.
The City course was a 10-day course, focusing on practical training that took place not only on the desk, but also in the field. In the final session, you will present your own AT tour to overseas buyers (virtual business meeting)! Then comes the final paper test and interview.
