The first registration day for tourism & hospitality courses went well. Considering the current developments, where there is a lack of qualified personnel to work in the tourism sector, the Curaçao government has made funds available for several trainings in the short term in order to prepare and equip people to fill the current vacancies. The people who attended the first registration day could sign up for one of the courses that will be starting shortly, namely for the positions of chef, waiter/waitress, bartender and housekeeping.
Furthermore, on the first day of registration, the agreement on the training program execution was officially signed. This agreement was signed by the Minister of Economic Development, Mr. Ruisandro Cijntje, and Mr. Hugo Clarinda, deputy director of the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB). The signing took place in the presence of the Minister of Social Development, Labor and Welfare, Mrs. Ruthmilda Larmonie-Cecilia, Mrs. Zulaika Mook (MEO), Mrs. Maria-Helena Seferina-Rojas (CHATA) and Mr. Zeno Circkens (CRA).
There is still opportunity to register for the upcoming courses on Tuesday, July 5 at Sambil Curaçao between 8:30 am and 3 pm.
