The goal of the GSA certification training is to reinforce the tools and knowledge needed to meet and exceed the expectations of guests and support the authentic culture of New Hampshire, its people, and its products. The 7 week training includes 14 comprehensive hours of learning through lectures and sharing. Attendees will hear from over 20 speakers on subjects including tourism, hospitality, outdoor recreation, attraction and heritage tourism, business, economic development, industry, and education. Attendees come to understand why “it’s always sunny in New Hampshire.”
This year’s GSA certification training sponsors are Kimball Jenkins Estate, NH Parks, Hampton Area Chamber of Commerce, Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth, Keene Downtown, Historical Society of Cheshire County, Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce and Monadnock Travel Council.
The final certification training for 2020 will be held online weekly for 7, 2-hour modules from July 14-August 11 with a flexible, self-paced program.

Certified GSAs have numerous opportunities each year to reinforce certification and update skills by participating in free activities, tours, special events, and specialized trainings. It’s fun and a great way to meet others who live here or are visiting and want to know more. Being a GSA is for anyone 18-80 who loves talking to visitors about the Granite State. Children under 18 can volunteer with a parent or grandparent who is a certified GSA, through our Future Leaders of New Hampshire Program.
