Becoming a Licensed Battlefield Guide

Since 1915 more than five hundred seventy individuals have successfully completed the government testing, training and licensing process earning a license to guide. The process has evolved through the years to today's step process: application, written exam, intensive weekend training seminar, oral examination, and finally licensing. The process of attaining a license to legally conduct paid tours of the Gettysburg National Military Park is by far the question most frequently asked of veteran battlefield guides.

NOTE: The National Park Service and a committee of Licensed Battlefield Guides, are currently in the process of revising the entire licensing process.  Accordingly, the information contained in the following pages may or may not be valid.
