LAOS - Successful completion of tourism/hospitality training in Champasak
21 staff members from micro, small and medium tourism/hospitality enterprises received certificates of completion of the Pheun Than Heng A Sip Training Programme (PTHAS) in Champasak province in July. Certificates were presented in Pakse by Madame Mala Chanthalam, Deputy Director of the Department of Information, Culture and Tourism (DICT) and Mr Thouy Phetsavanh, president of the Champasak Hotel and Restaurant Association (CHRA).
The staff members completed 12 competency assessed units in either food and beverage service or housekeeping, delivered by industry trainers coordinated by the CHRA. Swisscontact is supporting the CHRA to deliver the PTHAS training programme under the Skills for Tourism Project LAO/029.
In collaboration with Skills for Tourism Project LAO/029, Swisscontact implements the Pheun Than Heng A Sip Training Programme.
