Certification allows you to maintain a professional standard in your chosen industry and be seen as a professional in your field. This is important as tourism standards continue to improve and clients search out highly trained, quality services.
Your professional dues keep your certification active and in good standing so you don't have to re-certify or re-take courses regularly.
We have set up pro-deals for our certified guides in good standing with some great outdoor companies.
Additional benefits of corporate membershipwith the Interpretive Guides Association:
Your corporate fee includes the company name on our website and two coupons for professional dues to give to your guiding staff.
