ACCREDITATION OF TOURIST EXCELLENCE SICTED
Congratulations! Our academy has been awarded the "Compromiso de Calidad Turística" distinction in recognition of promoting Valencia as a safe and quality tourist destination.
It is a project to improve the quality of tourist destinations promoted by the Secretariat of State for Tourism (SET), with the support of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP) and the aim is to generate confidence and security in both residents and visitors.
The Integral System of Spanish Tourist Quality in Destinations (SICTED) is a methodology that provides an integral and permanent system of quality management in a tourist destination with a new conception of the expected results, a focus on continuous improvement and an attitude of recovery and enhancement of resources and space.
SICTED is based on the integral awareness of the destination and the identification of common objectives of the agents involved.
The initiative is completed with the publication of guides for the reduction of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection in the tourism sector. the implementation of specific actions for service, cleaning and disinfection, maintenance and risk management against the coronavirus.

The label is the support that accredits the fulfilment of the requirements established in the methodology and recognizes the effort and commitment to quality and continuous improvement. The award is valid for two years, although it is conditional on an annual follow-up assessment.
