The Tourist Guide Training & Licensing programme, an immersive and in-depth training course that trains licensed tour guides and offers them the practical and theoretical tools to operate to an international standard. In line with the Department’s mission to support the development of the Emirate into a destination of distinction, the programme calls on the Emirati community to use their passion for, and knowledge of, the history and heritage of the UAE to provide visitors with unique and authentic experiences.

With the new curriculum and advanced courses, the Department of Culture and Tourism initiated further plans in order to attract the Emirati community to participate in the tourism sector, a vital and ever-burgeoning industry in Abu Dhabi.  The programme aims to improve the quality of local tourist guide knowledge and enhance their engagement skills, ultimately improving the tourist experience.

The programme has been carefully designed to offer an extensive curriculum to shortlisted applicants, covering all aspects of attractions in Abu Dhabi, the culture and heritage of the UAE, first-aid, guiding principles and skills, group management and emergencies. Along with recurring periods of self-study and practical training, the trainees will also undertake a written assessment and give a mock presentation and city tour in order to obtain their license.
