Global tour guide association debuts training classes in Malaysia
THE World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (WFTGA) will launch its inaugural training programmes in Malaysia from June 17 to 29 in Sabah. The training programmes, to be organised annually, are open to licensed tourist guides from all over the world, said Roger Rajah, area representative for Asia and South Asia and executive board member, WFTGA. Four courses will be on offer this year: a Hands-on-Training course, Train the Trainer course, International Trainer course and Lead International Trainer course.
“The courses are meant to enhance tourist guiding skills. With a WFTGA certificate, participants will be more sought after in the marketplace,” said Rajah. The classes will be held within Universiti Malaysia Sabah at the WFTGA International Training Centre, which is jointly managed by the association and university.
