Tour Guide Ready Program

Cruising at Yellow Water Billabong

A unique opportunity exists for tour operators to attract potential tour guides to the Top End and Red Centre through Charles Darwin University's (CDU) "Tour Guide Ready Program".

CDU has partnered with the Northern Territory Government to deliver a free 5-week intensive course which will enable eligible participants to become fully accredited tour guides at either Kakadu National Park or Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, saving them more that $7000 in training fees. 

The course includes national park accreditation (Uluru or Kakadu), LR license training and 6 units accredited towards Certificate III in Guiding (SIT30315).  

Two courses will be provided for Central Australia, commencing 31 January and 26 April 2022 respectively, and 14 March 2022 for the Top End.

The course is free, however the cost of the NT H-endorsement, LR Licence, Medical Fitness Certificate and Criminal History Check are the responsibility of the participant. Entry criteria must be met to enrol and students must have a current First Aid Certificate.
