UVI-CELL Offers Taxi and Tour Certification Program

Jan. 10, 2008 – Taxi and tour operators who want to receive certification will again have the opportunity to qualify. The next six-week session is scheduled to begin from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, at the University of the Virgin Islands' Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning (UVICELL) Center on St. Thomas.
The six-week program educates taxi and tour operators on customer service, V.I. history and culture, points of interest and presentation skills. The training will cost $250, which includes materials.
In order to receive certification, students are required to pass a 100-question exam and put the presentation skills acquired in class to use. Upon successful completion, they will receive a certificate of completion and a certification identification card. Graduates of the program are eligible for membership in the Certified Taxi and Tour Guide Association.
