ETCAATS Partners Launch EU Training Course on Accessible Tourism
13/12/2011 | 0 comments
This new, European on-line training course addresses ways of improving tourism businesses and serving customers who have specific access requirements.
The course is an "appetizer" for business owners and employees, providing a general introduction to the subject of accessible tourism. It includes short texts, 'best practice' videos with case studies of actual businesses, reference documents and links.
By taking the course, professionals in the tourism industry will learn about the advantages of engaging with this fast-growing market and how to attract and serve new customers.
Students of tourism management and hospitality can also benefit from following the course and studying the additional references.
One of the advantages of the e-learning course is that participants can work at their own pace, fitting in their training when they have time. The on-line system keeps a record of their work and their test results.
Developed by a team of ENAT Members under the European Union's programme for Lifelong Learning, the course integrates training materials from various European countries. The course language is English.
The course is available at: http://www.accesstraining.eu
The e-learning course is currently being tested and will be amended as necessary on the basis of feedback from participants.
Participants are invited to answer the User Survey after creating a user account and taking one or more modules of the course.
On completing the first four "basic" modules of the course, participants can receive the Accessible Tourism Training First-level Certificate issued by ENAT.
