THE CERTIFICATION FOR DIALOGUE AMONG CULTURES – LIFE BEYOND TOURISM® DTC-LBT: 2018
What is a certification?
A certification is a document granted by a competent entity to certify that a company (or an institution) is following some international Standards. An example of an internationally recognized certification is the UNI EN ISO 9001, that defines the quality standards that an organization should have.
Getting a certification means proving to your costumers and competitors that your organization can guarantee a certain quality of services, and to do so is ready to be examined by an external certification body.
The Certification for Dialogue among Cultures – Life Beyond Tourism® DTC-LBT: 2018 is the certification system for the management of a company/institution that describes the level of intercultural dialogue performed and achieved by a business or an institution.
