The Door County Visitors Bureau begins its 2020 Certified Tourism Ambassador program Tuesday at the Door County Maritime Museum. There are 11 classes held throughout the year at various locations. Each class is four hours and is a standalone session meaning that students become certified after one lesson. Membership Manager Yvonne Torres says there is a renewal process in place that must be done annually upon completing the course.
The Visitor’s Bureau teams up with the Tourism Ambassador Institute to help train those who interact with tourists in the area to make Door County an attractive destination. Much of the curriculum focuses on area history.
