National Certificate in Tourism (Business Practice) (Level 4) with optional strand in Operational Management

The National Certificate in Tourism (Business Practice) (Level 4) with an optional strand in Operational Management [Ref: 1595] recognises the skills and knowledge required of a person employed in a senior operational or supervisory level position in the tourism sector.

The qualification is designed to be completed on-the-job, with trainees working through ATTTO resources to complete assessments. Managers provide support as required and help ensure learning is specific to the trainee’s workplace.

Content covers people management, employment and contract law, the background of tourism in New Zealand, ecological tourism management, marketing and business writing skills. Trainees earn unit standards at Levels 3 and 4 on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

This qualification is achievable in both pre-employment and workplace environments, however the optional strand can only be achieved if the trainee is working in an actual tourism workplace.

People awarded this qualification are likely to be responsible for providing services to visitors, and leading or supervising employees, resources, and/or business operations in the tourism sector.

Programme registration for each trainee costs $155 plus GST, including full programme manuals. Assessment fees are $500 plus GST, or (if you are planning on registering a number of trainees) ATTTO can work with you to train an in-house assessor. An $80 grant will be paid to employers on each trainee's completion of the programme.
