Amman, March 12, 2013
Petra Arab Human Resources Development & Tourism Sciences Company has established a specialised travel and tourism institute.
The Petra Travel & Tourism Institute aims to educate and train students, new entrants to the industry and individuals interested in a career change.
Current employees working in the industry also can develop and enhance their career through obtaining certification and accreditation by internationally recognized organizations in various fields in travel, tourism and hospitality through the institute, said a statement.
Ayman Samawi, general manager of the institute, said the institute can fill the gap in skilled and well-trained workforce.
The institute will start to receive students and trainees from mid-April, Samawi added.
Students will undergo three months of intense academic and practical training coupled with skills in communication, English language, information technology (IT) and customer services.
The institute, licensed by Jordanian Ministry of Education, has been accredited by various international institutions such as IATA as an approved training centre; Amadeus Certification as education and training provider.
Graduate students will obtain a diploma from IATA and Amadeus System User Certification which is considered to be the largest Global Distribution Systems (GDS) worldwide for travel agencies, airlines, and airports.
Institute chairman Wael Nasser Kawar said the institute will contribute to creating job opportunities for Jordanians, locally and regionally. More courses will be added in the future, he said. – TradeArabia News Service
