On 28 April 2014, Kementerian Pelancongan & Kebudayaan held an oral examination for Kursus Pemandu Pelancong at Sinar College. The students were evaluated by 4 independent examiners who are experienced tour guide practitioners in Melaka and observed by representatives from Ministry of Tourism & Culture. The examination was divided into 2 sessions; slide presentation and bus coaching.
The examination started with slide presentation at 08.30 am which each trainee was randomly assigned a topic in Power Point slide where they must spontaneously elaborate the pictures and topic on the slides.
At 11.00 am, all students successfully completed their slides presentation and moved to Kolej Sinar’s bus. On the bus, candidates took turn to spontaneously talk or perform commentary on scenes and buildings along the road the bus was taking. The bus brought the students for a tour in historical city of Melaka.
At the end of the day, Sinar College’s lecturing team, Kementerian Pelancongan’s representatives and examiners had general discussion on the tourist guide students’ performance.
