CTC Franchises in the Philippines

Philippines eyed as tourism training hub in Asia
December 5, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – The Canadian Tourism & Hospitality Institute (CTHI), the country’s first international franchise of the Vancouver-based Canadian Tourism College, aims to transform the Philippines as the premier tourism and hospitality training center in Asia.

CTHI president Samie Lim told reporters during a seminar on ‘8 Pillars of Growth Strategy’ for the tourism sector organized by the institute that there is a strong need to upgrade the standards of tourism and hospitality schools in the country.
“We aim to become the training center in Asia,” Lim said.

Lim said that CTHI will lead the way in upgrading the current standards to the international level in terms of course curriculum, training and facilities.  CTHI will access the curriculum, policies, procedures and intellectual property from the well known and respected Canadian Tourism College (CTC).     

With the standards that CTHI brings when it opens its first school in June, Lim expects to change the tourism course landscape in the country in a matter of three years.

CTHI plans to put up schools in other parts in tourist destination areas such as Boracay, Bohol, Davao or Cebu on a franchise arrangement.

CTC prepared me for much more than I could have ever imagined. I knew I loved to travel, I gained a solid knowledge of the tourism industry and I finished school with countless opportunities for work.

The instructors were excellent, so enthusiastic and helpful.

Right after graduation, I started work in a travel agency and after gaining a lot experience in the Cruise Industry, I decided I wanted a change. I immediately gained employment as a Sales Representative and Tour Guide. The education I received from CTC allowed me to enter into a new position with confidence and ease, and now I love my job!

I have been able to travel all over Western Canada, sharing my love of travel with many others as a tour guide and sales representative. Attending CTC was one of the best decisions of my life, because I now get to travel and get paid for it! What more could a self-confessed travel addict want?
