A regulated profession means that the entry conditions for the pursuit of that profession or the practice of that profession (after entering it) is regulated by an obligatory legislative act. In Slovenia there are five regulated professions in the field of tourism: tourist guide, accompanying assistant, mountain guide, caving guide (potholio guide) and canyoning guide. The legislation in this field is rather complex, as the named professions are regulated in four different legislative acts. In this paper, we analyse the conditions and the procedure to obtain a licence for regulated professions in the field of tourism in Slovenia. We conclude with remarks on the future possible development in this field.
