The European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations (FEG) and Athina Training Centre Skills Academy are inviting tourist guides on a trans-European journey with the new “Western Silk Road Experience” online course.
The new course offers tourist guides the opportunity to explore a new guiding theme – from the less-explored subject of the Silk Road – and add to existing tours.
FEG trainers and researchers have created the course as life-long training for qualified tourist guides.
“The Silk Road is the longest, most ancient trade route, connecting diverse cultures and far-away countries over the centuries. Most people associate the Silk Road with Asia only. But did you know that its routes extend over all European countries from the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea to Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and to the wider geographical area of Eurasia? Included in Eurasia are Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, as countries bordering the Black Sea.” – FEG
Through the course tourist guides will follow “the steps of silk” to destinations off the beaten track and be the first to plan and offer diverse and sustainable destination visits to clients.
“Take advantage of the work of FEG trainers and follow the ‘Western Silk Road Experience’ online course to gain inside knowledge by this new life-long training and certification for this particularly evocative subject,” FEG said.
All FEG association members’ qualified tourist guides or its affiliate associations are eligible to attend the “Western Silk Road Experience” online course.
The course duration is 25 learning hours and can be done at ones own pace.
The course divides to three training modules. Short knowledge tests follow each one of thee training modules.
Candidates who register and pay by June 30, receive a 20 percent discount on the course fee.
