foto 2023v curs guia turisticThe Office of Tourism of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that a training course for the tourism sector in which 27 people have enrolled has started this week. The course prepares participants to take the exams to obtain accreditation as tourist guides in the Balearic Islands. This is the first time that the course is held on Formentera and it has been tailored for participants who are not seeking accreditation, but who wish to improve their general knowledge of Formentera to better support the island's visitors.

Alejandra Ferrer, vice president and tourism councillor, shared her satisfaction that "for the first time we can offer this Formentera-specific training and thus have guides offering quality care to visitors and achieving employment".

Employers and workers can also take a module of general knowledge and obtain a Consell de Formentera-issued certificate that will help holders apply for benefits, take part in promotions on the Office of Tourism website, and be considered for recruitment in marketing activities. This course will take place afternoons in May and can be taken in person or online.

Exams for official guides of the Balearic Islands will be held 30 May. Twenty-one people have applied.
