Ministry, local travel company offer free training for students

The Ministry of Tourism and travel company Alliance Plus Solutions have announced a free AMADEUS flight-booking training course for those studying to work in the tourism industry.

AMADEUS is a website and app that allows users to book flights and other services in the region from a smartphone or computer.

Da Riya, a technical support and sales specialist at Alliance Plus Solutions said: “It runs on a website that requires users to have access after obtaining permission from Alliance Plus Solutions. Through the app, users can book flights with all airlines. In addition, people can book train tickets or whatever is available locally.”

According to a ministry announcement released on November 17, the programme is for students studying at tourism and hospitality institutions in Cambodia.

They must have a certificate of education from their school, display a high level of responsibility and studiousness, have a good command of English and have basic computer skills. They also must pass an entrance test.

Tourism ministry spokesman Top Sopheak told The Post on November 18 that students studying at public and private schools, if interested, can register for the course.

He says the course can help lead to job opportunities in the sector and internships.

“They can study and get internships at a company or they can find a job somewhere that suits the professional skills that they received through the training. They also receive a certificate from the Ministry of Tourism which gives them the opportunity to become a ticket agent on the digital mobile app,” Sopheak said.

He added that there is no limit to how many students can be accepted. The course will be offered over two weeks with morning or evening classes of 25 students offered.

“So, if they have free time in the morning, they can choose that shift, or the evening shift for those who are free in the evening.

“The training takes two weeks, with classes held from Monday to Friday.

“The deadline for receiving applications is November 30. After that, applicants will take an entry exam for the classes, which will begin in December,” Sopheak said.
