Ministry of Tourism has 21 free courses with open registration

Travel and Tourism Agencies, Libras, English, Spanish and Wine Tourism and Regional Development. These are some of the online courses with open registration promoted free of charge by the Ministry of Tourism. In total, 21 training courses are available to tourism professionals from all over Brazil.

The National Secretary for Tourism Development and Competitiveness, William França, explains that the wide range of courses is the result of several partnerships signed between the MTur and educational institutions across the country with the aim of promoting the qualification of national tourism. “We are working to offer free, high-quality courses to our tourism professionals. Qualified tourism is essential to enable the safe resumption of tourist activities”, he highlights.

A cooperation agreement signed between the Ministry of Tourism and the Federal Institute of Rio Grande do Sul (IFRS) offers 20 free online courses to professionals in tourism or other areas who wish to train in the thematic universes covered. Among the qualifications with open registration are: Geography and Tourism; Libras: basic understanding; Geographical Indication: Adding Value to Products and Regions; Geography and Geopolitics today; Biology; Wine tourism and regional development; Travel and Tourism Agencies; Geography 1 and 2; and Food Hygiene and Quality Control, aimed at workers in the food sector, such as bars and restaurants.

The same partnership also offers six English classes, two Spanish classes and two Portuguese classes as an additional language, aimed at refugee and immigrant tourism professionals, as well as Brazilians who want to improve their knowledge of the language. Registration can be completed until June 30th on the IFRS website .

Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) is the subject of another course made available by MTur, through an agreement signed with the Rondônia Education Institute (IERO/Acelibras). The training adds to Pasta's efforts to strengthen accessible tourism in Brazil and improve the experience of travelers who have reduced hearing capacity. Entitled “Pounds for public service”, the free online course is aimed at professionals in tourism or other areas, as well as students who work or wish to work in the sector, with a focus on serving tourists.

The content is aimed at beginner students, who will learn everything from the Libras alphabet to the formation of sentences and will be able to communicate at the end of the course. Everyday topics are also included, such as professions, gastronomy, sport, transport, nature, among others.
