Continuing Professional Development Scheme for Tourist Guides
Licensed tourist guides, including holders of pre-existing tourist guide passes taken to be licensed tourist guides, applying for the renewal of their licences must have completed the Continuing Professional Development Scheme for Tourist Guides specified by Travel Industry Authority (TIA).
Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong (TIC) organises a list of recognised CPD courses or activities:
A: Consolidation and updating of knowledge
B: Professional ethics
C: Self-selected activities
The CPD requirement is only considered complied with if all courses or activities are completed within the validity period of the tourist guide licence. In other words, completion of courses or activities while the licence has already expired will not be accepted.
For the renewal of Tourist Guide Licence, please contact the TIA (https://www.tia.org.hk) for details.
