An adventure travel company’s most important asset is also the dimension that carries the most risk – the people who guide your customers and are the human face of your organization. As the industry matures, the expected standards of safety and high quality guiding increases among travelers, destination leaders and the media.
The Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) is helping to raise the bar for professional adventure travel guides. In addition to being networked with the most respected tour operators, outfitters, and media, the ATTA is also leading the industry working group charged with creating the first internationally recognized guide qualification and performance standard.
ATTA is proud to make Guide Training available through its AdventureEDU program. This program has been developed by the professional guides, trainers, and adventure travel operators at the forefront of shaping guide standards.
