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.

Adventure Diploma Alumni

When I told my friends and family that I was going to take a course in Adventure Tourism, the most common response was "There's a course in that? Sounds more like fun than school!" While in many ways they were right (I did have a lot of fun!), I found that I learned so much in the fields of leadership, first aid, group dynamics, decision making, backcountry skiing, river rafting, ocean kayaking and hiking.

The Adventure Tourism Diploma at CTC gave me all the skills I needed to work in the field of ecotourism. The Instructors were all experts in their fields and each section of the course was taught with an emphasis on real world application of the skills learned.

Since graduation, I have become an ocean kayaking guide in Tofino, BC. My workplace is the beautiful surroundings of Clayoquot Sound and each day I have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and share with them the scenery of BC's West Coast.

I wholeheartedly recommend the Adventure Tourism program at CTCollege for anyone who has a thirst for adventure and a love of the outdoors.
