Second-year student Kieran Atkinson accepts his emerit certificate from Rod Clark, emerit coordinator for TIAPEI.

Congratulations to Kieran Atkinson, a second-year student in our Tourism and Travel Management program, for earning his emerit certification as a tour guide. In addition to writing an exam, Kieran had to complete 60 hours of tour guiding experience. He also worked, for the second year, on the Points East Tulip Festival.

emerit Certifications provide employers with the confidence that an employee has the appropriate training for a position in the tourism and travel industry. In Prince Edward Island, th Tourism Industry Association of P.E.I. (TIAPEI) is the official supplier of emerit products and services.
