Be a Fernie Ambassador Sponsor 

The Fernie Ambassador Program is a course designed specifically for the community of Fernie. The program will produce passionate, engaged and resourceful community members. 
"It is imperative my staff is knowledgeable in what Fernie has to offer. The Ambassador program equipped my team with destination knowledge and customer service skills to be able to go above and beyond for our guests. Improving the visitor experience is beneficial to everyone and this program is doing exactly that."
Marina Pauw, Fernie Super 8

The Customer Service aspect focuses on creating a visitor experience that leaves lasting impressions with guests. Other elements of the program will equip participants with local knowledge whether it is community resources, familiarization with local mountains and trails or fascinating snippets of Fernie’s history. Combining all aspects, the training will set local staff apart offering pieces of dialogue to enhance the experience of a guest at your store, hotel, restaurant or attraction.
