The Municipal Tourism Directorate offered training in basic and medium English language levels for elements of the Tourist Police in Puerto Vallarta in order to offer better service to foreign tourists.
In the past few days at the CECATUR facilities, the first 22 policemen from the tourist unit received their certificates and recognitions, upon completing the first two phases of training in the English language.
The first graduates of this class will continue English courses until they achieve the standard level in the program, while the new groups entering the course will follow the same path until completing their studies, all supported by the Ministry of Public Education.
The agreement of the City Council of Puerto Vallarta was achieved through the Municipal Tourism Directorate, with the Training Center for Industrial Work (CECATI), as well as the English teacher, in which they fulfilled a total of 100 classroom hours within the first two phases, which required 38 and 42 hours respectively of training assistance.
Highlights in the language program include training in vocabulary and important technicalities in dialogue for better communication with foreign tourists, which will allow better attention and quick action by the elements.
