CTO launches online training and development center

Wednesday, 07 Dec, 2021 0

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) has reached agreement with the Canada-based e-learning courseware development company, Velsoft, to further advance the regional tourism development agency’s virtual training and development program.

As part of the agreement, Velsoft will host the ‘Caribbean Tourism Institute,’ the CTO’s online campus developed by the Canadian firm.

The new portal is an open online educational, training and development learning centre designed to provide affordable access to training opportunities for everyone who works, or aspires to work, in the Caribbean tourism and hospitality sector.

“Velsoft has been working closely with us to help us realise one of our key human resources development objectives of increasing the access of Caribbean nationals to high quality training and educational opportunities,” said Neil Walters, the CTO’s acting secretary general. ”

As part of the agreement, Velsoft will provide all of the resources to convert CTO courses into e-learning activities and will allow the institute full access to its non-accredited courses, which will be promoted under the institute’s brand.

“Velsoft is excited to partner with the Caribbean Tourism Organization on the ambitious initiative to raise the collective level of skills in the Caribbean’s tourism sector,” said Jim Fitt, chief executive of Velsoft.

Velsoft will release at least two new online courses each month to ensure the latest and most applicable training is made available to over 2.5 million professionals in the Caribbean’s hospitality and tourism sector.
