Australian Regional Tourism launches professional development program

Australian Regional Tourism (ART) has launched an online professional development training program to help tourism providers stimulate visitation to regional areas impacted by two years of Covid-related travel restrictions.

Sponsored by Tourism Australia, the program will be delivered online via the Tourism Hub.

“Destination managers and tourism managers in the regions don’t always have access to professional development and tourism capability building programs,” said Coralie Bell, Chair at Australian Regional Tourism.

“This program has been developed by the regional tourism community, and for the regional tourism community, and sets the minimum level of knowledge required to work effectively within destination development.”

ART’s training program will cover 12 modules across a broad spectrum of topics delivered by leading tourism professionals.
