UVICELL Seeks Taxi Drivers for Certification Program

Oct. 3, 2006 – The University of the Virgin Islands' Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning (UVICELL) Center is actively seeking taxi drivers and tour guides for the upcoming Taxi and Tour Certification Program.
The program is designed to equip tourism professionals with the necessary skills to give accurate information to tourists about the history and cultural heritage of the Virgin Islands. The eight-hour certification program covers customer service, history and culture, points of interest and presentation skills. The program will conclude with written and oral exams.
It is scheduled to begin from 6-8 p.m., Oct. 16, and will continue every Thursday until Nov. 16. The training will cost $250 including materials. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate of completion and a certification identification card. Participants will also be eligible for a decal and emblem with the certification logo, distinguishing the graduates as certified taxi and tour guides.
Interested participants are urged to contact the UVICELL Center at 693-1100 or visit http://cell.uvi.edu.
