    ITMI appears to be 100% legitimate, since there are many references to them in articles at reputable sites. They help their graduates with career placement. Their training costs about 3000USD. Here's a link to their website:

    http://www.itmitourtraining.com/

    An article at JobMonkey says tour guides/directors start at 15-18USD per hour, and experienced tour guides make 20-25USD per hour with time and a half for overtime. The earning can be even higher if you work for a major company. Is the 3000USD worth it? I'd say so, if it gets you the career you love.

    Is the cost ot the ITMI course too much right now? Cherie Anderson offers a six-week course called "Get Paid To Travel" for 120USD that covers the basics; you can read about it and enroll here:

    ed2go online courses

    This course can either be taken online through the above site, or through an accredited college or university if there's one offering it in your area (there's a form for locating a school near you at the site).

    Becoming a group travel director or tour director is a good way to go to interesting places and stay at nice hotels. You basically are fully responsible for the group and dealing with the various suppliers to make sure everything goes smoothly. I work for an incentive group travel company and we have 1 travel director for every 50 people on a trip usually. Then there's also a lead person who is more like the supervisor.
