Guide Training


We offer training that is accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guides in London (See History Section for more info on the Institute). Our next Blue Badge Training Course will commence in September 2018, with recruitment starting much earlier. The course is being specially designed for people who speak languages other than English, but we will accept a small percentage of applicants for whom English is their only language.

Tourism NI are currently undertaking a review of Tourist Guiding in Northern Ireland, including training of new guides. As an association we welcome that review, and depending on its results our future training after 2018 may be influenced by this review.
