Canadian-made training programs await you at the Arrival gate

Tourists visiting Canada will most likely interact with our frontline service staff in accommodations, hospitality, and entertainment venues. Many of these tourism professionals have been trained through emerit. Canadians have a reputation for pleasantness, but being nice is not enough. These personality traits must be complimented by skills gleaned from exceptional training programs. Tourism employees are highly trained by the businesses they work for, colleges and continuing education institutions, and private organizations and associations.

One such organization is Tourism HR Canada, where the emerit training products are researched, designed, and tested. Tourism HR Canada works hand-in-hand with industry, small businesses, education institutions, and large corporate enterprises, to develop the emerit line of skill training programs.

It has only been five years since we received our first order from an international customer. They purchased a dozen emerit workbooks. Since then, we have worked with international education institutions and businesses that use emerit to train their own students and staff.
emerit fits seamlessly into any tourism training program. It can be used on its own, or integrated  directly into existing training programs.
