First Panel Interviews Completed

IPTGSA

At a meeting held on 20 April 2017 attended by members of the Board and Exco the Panel Interview process was finalised and discussed . A panel then convened and interviewed the first 6 applicants to test the the procedures and get all the systems going.

The panel interview is not there to check the knowledge of the aspirant member but to test the professional experience which the guide has accumulated over the last 5 ( or more ) years as a registered tourist guide . Questions and discussions must be based on experiences of the applicant to determine if such a candidate is professional enough to better him/herself and to promote this most important sector of the tourism industry.

The committee wishes the first members to the Institute a great career forward and with the commitment already shown will see it go from strength to strength.
