How to be a licenced Tourist Guide

The existing pre-licensing Tourist Guide (TG) course which comprises of 3 WSQ competency units has ceased enrolment in December 2015. The Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) is currently working with its approved training providers (ATOs) to launch an enhanced pre-licensing TG course in 2016. This enhanced pre-licensing TG course is part of the TG Tripartite Taskforce's recommendation released in August 2015. The Taskforce consist of Employment and Employability Institute (e2i), Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA).

The objective of the enhanced course is to improve the training curriculum and streamlined the assessment framework. Trainees can look forward to a more comprehensive and streamlined training curriculum targeted at equipping them with the relevant and applicable skillsets to carry out guiding services effectively. There will be more practical training hours to hone their guiding skills, e-learning modules to learn at their convenience, and new modules to ensure breadth and depth of knowledge.

More information on the enhanced pre-licensing TG course will be shared by the ATOs by end 2016 / early 2017.
