Cultural Heritage Tourism Cert – University College Cork

CHTThis course will provide the adult learner with a broad appreciation of the cultural heritage of Ireland and the many ways it can be presented as a tourism product.

The course provides a training opportunity for individuals interested in all aspects of cultural heritage, with a particular emphasis of those participating in community groups and local societies.
