The George Washington University’s Tourism Destination Management and Marketing Certificate Program announces the launch of “Safety and Security for Tourism Destinations: Achieving a Safe and Secure Tourism Environment”. This is a course designed to help tourism professionals understand the importance of safety and security within a destination, as well as provide them with the “tools” needed to create a secure environment for both visitors and residents. World-renowned travel safety and security expert, Dr. Peter E. Tarlow, has developed this course by drawing on his wealth of experience and the growing number of publications in this area. The course is available worldwide via Internet-based distance learning. For more information please contact Kristin Lamoureux at firstname.lastname@example.org.
