successfully completed by 19 SOAW clients
WILLEMSTAD – October 30, 2020 – Recently, a group of 19 clients of the Ministry of Social Development, Labor and Welfare (SOAW) successfully completed a tourist massage course. The course was offered by the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) in close collaboration with SOAW, the Ministry of Economic Development (MEO) and Curaçao Tropical Spa. The certificate handout ceremony was held at the Academy Hotel Curaçao in the presence of the Minister of Economic Development, Dr. Steven Martina, and the Minister of Social Development, Labor and Welfare, Mr. Hensley Koeiman.
In addition to the theoretical aspects, the participants learned to apply massaging techniques using natural products such as calabash. The course also included modules on customer service, finances, marketing and entrepreneurship. The entrepreneurship session provided the participants with the tools they will need in order to set up their own business in the future. The course started in the beginning of this year and was concluded through virtual sessions in September. In addition to a certificate from Curaçao Tropical Spa, the participants also received one from the Carmen Llanos-Ali Tajan training institute, a Colombian institute that worked with Curaçao Tropical Spa for the certification of the massage course.
The CTB, SOAW and MEO wish these participants all the best in their future endeavors.
