Vermont tourism department offers “ambassador” training

(AP) _ The Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing is seeking people interested in becoming tourism ambassadors for the state.

The department will hold a free training workshop next month in Montpelier, Rutland and Bennington. The workshops are open to employees of Vermont businesses and organizations.

The goal is to provide visitors with readily available travel information throughout the state and to provide businesses with the know-how and resources to help provide quality customer service to those seeking advice.

Those attending the workshops will learn about tourism opportunities in the arts, history, food, agriculture, recreation and lodging.
Businesses with employees who complete the training can become a designated Ambassador Info Center promoted by the state Department of Tourism and Marketing.
