GANYC has developed an evolving, 10-week certification program focusing on all aspects of planning and executing a high-quality tour, and operating a tour guide business, including classroom instruction and practical assessment. Certification tuition covers equipment/rental costs and honoraria. Certified guides also complete a continuing education component to maintain their certification.

The designation Certified Guide means the marked individual guide has successfully completed and fulfilled all the requirements of GANYC's professional development program that focuses on how to research, plan, and conduct high-quality tours. These guides are entitled to use the designation, "GANYC certified guide."
