AN eco-tourism training conducted in Honiara in the last five days has equipped participants with new skills to efficiently run their operations.
More than 40 participants attended the training, delivered by Green Tourism Solomon Islands Ltd.
Managing director Michael Tokuru said 18 participants undertook the eco-tourism training, while 27 did the life-skills training.
The workshop, held at the SIDT building in Chinatown, ended yesterday.
“The training was geared to equipping operators as well as those intending to go into eco-tourism business,” Mr Tokuru said.
“This course was delivered with the aim of giving them the basic skills to run their operations,” he added.
“We are here to encourage the operators to keep going with their work.”
Mr Tokuru encouraged the participants to go back and put into action the skills they’ve learned.
Gordon Tapalia, a provincial member in the Guadalcanal Assembly, said the training was important for operators.
“We have learned more new things about the field and hopefully, we will do more to improve out establishments,” he said.
