Workers who already work or intend to enter the tourism sector will have a new chance to improve knowledge, curriculum and contribute to the development of the travel market in Brazil. The Ministry of Tourism has reopened the registrations for the visitor service course offered by the Brazil Braços Abertos (BBA) channel, a free online platform.
The training, open to anyone over 15, is an online training process.
The registration deadline is December 31 and the student must complete the course until March 30, 2020.
The Tourism Minister, Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, points out that the initiative drives advances in the sector.
“Our management has taken several actions to strengthen tourism, but this requires increasing qualification. With this, we have improved the ability to serve visitors well and contribute to the generation of jobs and income in Brazil,” he points out.
The course, with a total of 80 class hours, is divided into four modules: Introduction, Attendance, Communication and Cross-curricular Themes.
The training uses simple language and encompasses content such as English, ethics and marketing, transmitted through games and videos.
The National Secretary for Development and Competitiveness of MTur, Aluizer Malab, highlights joint efforts for accessions to the channel.
“It is very important to engage state and municipal secretaries of Tourism for the participation of professionals in this initiative, since any municipality in Brazil can access the platform,” he notes.
Tourism director Alcimari Franco, coordinator of the Tourist Association of the Jundiaí Grape Route (SP), which brings together wineries in the region, points out that the training has improved the reception of foreigners.
