This unit can apply to any situation where a guide or tour manager is involved in delivering a tour or activity to a group of customers. This could include tours of single sites or tours that include multiple products and sites.It is relevant in industries where group tours or activities take place in museums, galleries, libraries, places of historical or cultural significance, performing arts centres or zoos; to sport and recreation industries where groups participate in outdoor and adventure activities, such as guided bushwalking; and to any industry that operates tours for business or promotional purposes.Leading tour groups requires organisational and communication skills and guides who perform this function operate independently or with limited guidance from others.Tour guides, residing anywhere in Australia, are required to undertake training and assessment prescribed by Parks Australia to guide within Kakadu and Uluru–Kata Tjuta National Parks in the Northern Territory.When working in Queensland, all guides, regardless of their place of residence, are subject to the Queensland Tourism Services Act 2003.No other occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
