Les Cayes Tourism School To Open

Haiti has taken another step forward to boost the country's tourism industry. In a bid to improve the quality of the country's tourism services, the Ministry of Tourism is all set to open a training school in Les Cayes. The Hotel and Tourism Training Institute was established to train and hone the skills of only 60 students. Under the program, the students will be taught and trained by professionals who will be recruited from Les Cayes and from the Hotel School of Port-au-Prince.


Students can now enroll as the admission period will last until February 15. The training school will offer various subjects and programs involving the reception and accommodation of tourists, as well as housekeeping and bar services. The program is meant to enhance the skills of Haiti students in order to provide the best of services to tourists.

The training school, which will called IFORH, was built in a former base of the MINUSTAH (United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti). The Tourism Ministry in the South redesigned the area to turn it into a tourism training school.

According to Tourism Minister Stephanie Villedrouin, the training school is one of the government's priorities these days. With the program, the ministry hopes that Haiti will become an excellent tourism destination and travelers from all over the world will be encouraged to come here. The opening of the training school marks a record in the country's tourism industry as it is the first of its kind in the city of Les Cayes.
