New online program for tourism accreditation

30 /06/ 2016 Comments are Closed

The Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP) has launched a new and improved online program that will make it even easier for businesses to gain and renew their ATAP accreditation.

The new program will bring all of ATAP’s accreditation programs and systems online creating a seamless accreditation process for all accredited businesses. The new program will be adaptable to each individual business so only relevant topics are covered, as well as an enhanced feedback/review functionality and incorporation of the three yearly on-site assessment process.

In addition, the online program provides an enhanced process to assist in the creation of documented business systems, which will aid business planning and development.

“The new online platform has some fantastic elements which will significantly improve the process of accreditation for our industry,” said Erin McLeod, National Manager of the Australian Tourism Industry Program. “ATAP helps drive continuous improvement and supports a reputable and sustainable tourism industry. With the new and improved online platform we have a more efficient and user-friendly way to support tourism businesses.”

ATAP is a business development program that is based on Quality Assurance principles and certifies tourism businesses that meet specific quality assurance criteria. It is the only accreditation program in Australia that is open to any business that engages in visitor services and operates Australia wide. It is owned by the Australian Tourism Industry Council and is managed in Victoria by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council.

If you would like to know more about the online program, or on how your business can become an accredited tourism product, contact the ATAP team on (03) 8662 5387 or at accreditation@vtic.com.au
