EcoGuide Certification is a useful and valuable qualification for guides at all stages of their professional career. ECO certified operators use guides with this qualification to ensure their customers will be delivered an authentic, environmentally responsible and professional experience. The program covers both generic guiding skills plus EcoGuide specific minimal impact skills.
“The Eco Guide accreditation program has been a real benefit to my
operation and to myself as a guide. My clients seem to readily identify with
the Eco Guide logo – and give preference to my operation as an Eco Accredited
operation using Eco Guides. I am sure it contributes to us having a steady flow
of bookings year after year.” –Mike Keighley, winner of the 2012 EcoGuide Award of Excellence.
