(4/5/2013)

The Indonesian Tour Guides Association (HPI) is proposing that the current law requiring that licensed tour guide have tertiary certificates be changed to open that field of work to high school graduates.

As reported by The Jakarta Post, Amos Lilo, a spokesman for HPI-Bali, defended the move, saying many guides have only high school certificates but posses the knowledge and experience to work as professional guides.

Said Lilo: 

“We have proposed the provincial administration revise the articles on education to allow high school graduates to become a guide after completing a course and probationary period.”

The move is intended to expand working opportunities and help reduce the number of unlicensed guides in Bali. In 2012, 352 arrests were made of unregistered guides in Bali, with a greater number of arrests expected in 2013.

The Bali Tourist Authority, headed by Ida Bagus Kade Subhisku, and the governor of Bali, Made Mangku Pastika, have endorsed the change in policy now being discussed by legislators in Bali.



The HPI-Bali says the number of active guide licenses held in Bali numbered around 5,000 with another 3,000 guide licenses have gone inactive and not been renewed.
