The Aruba Certification Program was launched in 2011 by the Government of Aruba as a training program for individuals working in the hospitality industry. The A.C.P. is aimed to provide consistent and accurate information on the tourism destination product, improving the overall destination experience for our visitors. Participants will be able to share the Aruba story with visitors in search of cultural and authentic experiences.


With the establishment of the Aruba Excellence Foundation, the Aruba Tourism Authority (A.T.A.) has made a bold commitment to continue to improve the quality of service in the hospitality industry. After many years of working with different partners for the implementation and management of both programs (A.C.P. and H.I.O), the A.T.A. finds it important to resort these programs under a solid foundation that will guarantee their continuation and further development.
