People of the North East who know their ‘Finzean from their Fittie’ have been encouraged to take part in a new tourism programme.

The Aberdeen City & Shire Tourism Partnership (ATP) have launched a new customer service training initiative designed to enhance local knowledge amongst frontline staff.

Discover Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire is an online course which provides information on attractions, activities, sites, events and destinations in the area.
