PROCESS FOR GUIDE REVALIDATION
Once qualified utilizing the Log Template will make this job quick and easy.
Guide Revalidation Criteria
Polar Guides and Senior Polar Guides must revalidate every three years. Revalidation will be in the form of a Portfolio of Evidence supporting your continued currency and professional development.
A Revalidation POE must show logged time in relevant polar and non-polar areas, not less than 60 days active work in the PTI, a commitment to Continual Professional Development (CPD)*, and that any required 1st Aid qualifications and any other prerequisite qualifications are current. Utilising the Log Template will make the logged time part of revalidation quick and easy.
*CPD may include additional professional experience, private study, specific training, participation in lectures, seminars, online tests or development programs, refresher courses, conferences or internal company training (courses or training must include evidence of content such as agenda, learning plan or confirmation from facilitator).
The onus is on the Guide to outline the relevance of the CPD and should take into account changes in:
a) needs of individuals;
b) needs of organizations;
c) polar tourism activities techniques, technologies, equipment and practices;
d) participant relationship practice;
e) rules and legislation.
