Study Plan

Duration: 03 months

Study material included

Accessible Tourism is tourism without barriers that grants the right to leisure to all people, including -and above all- to those with disabilities.

Up to now, issues such as the ones we deal with in this diploma course have been hidden or omitted in the tourism industry, which is why the physical, social and psychological barriers are so theoretically present but non-concrete to put into practice UNIVERSAL TOURISM.

Pretending to make all countries accessible destinations, our Institute offers this 100% E-learning diploma course with high academic quality to train new generations of professionals aware of the importance of designing truly accessible tourism.

Target: Students of careers related to tourism, service providers (transportation, hotels, restaurants, tour guides, travel agencies, medical tour organizers, airlines, etc.), convention bureaus, tourism secretaries, and any professional/entrepreneur who wishes to develop accessibility and inclusion in the tourism sector.

The diploma course seeks to provide training on the concepts of accessible tourism in general, to broaden knowledge on accessible tourism, its market niches, benefits, variables, the adequacy of tourism activities and services for people with disabilities, and to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the quality of service to visitors with disabilities during the development of tourism and recreational activities in an urban or rural environment.
