David Almendarez

FECTAB President David Almendarez who is of a similar view, suggested instead that tour operators be trained on how to improve their online presence in the international marketplace.

“Mr. Evan, head of B.T.B., I will reach out to you before the end of the day and we wah come to a compromise where you will not penalize us fi noh tek no kinda simple course.  Tek wahn course about the introduction to tourism. Somebody bruk and need wahn lee money, noh worry ah got yoh back, we wahn do wah lee training and dehn haffi tek it.  How much ih wahn cost? Who wahn pay for it?  Even if dehn mek it free, di B.T.B. wahn pay for it. Da wahn system, da wahn crooked system. Yoh want ah tell unu, I wahn give unu solutions. Teach we bout how fi compete pan di international market. Teach di same way how Via Tour di contact dehn customers, teach we fi hook up with dehn kinda web providers, teach we fi build wahn website.”

 

Following FECTAB’s press conference this morning, B.T.B. provided an update to all tour guides informing, that the Belize Tourism Board advises current tour guides that will be seeking renewal of their licenses in July 2022, that you will not be affected due to non-completion of the professional core tour guide training module.  However, as stated in the previous Notice to All Tour Guides, issued on May eleventh, 2022, the Belize Tourism Board, in an effort to make this training module more accessible to tour guides, will be arranging courses in 2022 for those tour guides that have not yet completed this module.
