The Postgraduate Institute of Archaeology (PGIAR), University of Kelaniya, in collaboration with the Sri Lanka Institute of National Tourist Guide Lecturers (SLINTGL), successfully conducted the first-ever Diploma in Archaeology and Cultural Tourism course which has been included in a university curriculum.
53 National Tourist Guide Lecturers successfully completed the course and were awarded the Diploma at a simple but dignified ceremony held at the Auditorium of the National Museum.

On behalf of the Sri Lanka Institute of National Tourist Guide Lecturers, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Senior Professor Gamini Adhikari, Director PDIAR, Dr Arjuna Thanthilage, Course Coordinator, and the Academic Panel of PGIAR for their dedication to enhancing the knowledge of our members. Special thanks are due to Mr. Jayampath Senanayake for bearing the burden of organising the lectures. Last but not least, let us express our gratitude to Dr. Mahesh Thiththagalle, a former President of SLINTGL, for taking the initiative to get this program included in the university curriculum.
We wish all the best for the new Diploma holders! Congratulations!
