WFTGA is dedicated to the promotion of high standards of training and ethics within the [tourist guide] profession (WFTGA Constitution, Article 2). Hence, we have a team of qualified and dedicated trainers, called the Training Division. The day-to-day training-related activities are led by the WFTGA Training Committee, which is formed every 2 years.
