About AITO

The Australian Institute of Tourism Officers Ltd (AITO) provides its members with details of salary levels earned by Tourism Managers across Australia. This enables our members to compare what they are currently earning with industry standards. AITO also can provide members with professional advice when seeking a salary increase.

AITO can also provide its members with sample position descriptions, performance agreements and employment contracts. This puts AITO members in a position of strength when negotiating employment contracts or undergoing a performance review.

The AITO has an agreement with the Northern Melbourne Institute of Technology in offering training courses ranging from Certificate II through to Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Tourism. Key components of these courses are the ability to recognize and give credit for prior learning and experience in the work place.

Each year the AITO runs a residential professional development conference in June/July for the benefit of its members and others in the Tourism Industry. The AITO Professional Development Conference is set to equip all Tourism Professionals with skills and information for the Social Media needs of the next decade, as well as assisting in time management and juggling the demands on marketing both traditional & new age.

The AITO is a group of people across Australia who have banded together to form a professional organisation for the benefit of its members.

In addition to these member benefits the AITO acts in an advisory capacity to various governments and so can “foster” the recognition of professional Tourism Managers across Australia. Also the members form a network of colleagues that you can call on for advice and experience.
