THE Malaysian Association of Hotels Training and Education Centre (MAHTEC) will introduce its hospitality course in Brunei for the first time, as the association explores new international markets for its programmes.
MAHTEC commences its one-year Diploma in Hotel Management course for staff of The Empire Hotel & Country Club, Brunei on July 29.
“Twenty employees of the hotel have enrolled for the course,” said Reginald T Pereira, director, MAHTEC.
He added that the course was part of MAHTEC’s initiative in developing human capital within South-east Asia and beyond.
The association is also exploring the possibility of offering its range of hospitality courses in Vietnam, India and Mauritius.
In January this year, MAHTEC announced its collaboration with the Lao Hotel & Restaurant Association and its training partner, V Serve, to run the Bartender Management Certificate Programme in Laos (TTG Asia e-Daily, November 27, 2012).
