UCSI University, Sarawak Campus and Travelport have signed a memorandum of understanding to provide the Galileo booking platform, training materials and support for students enrolled in UCSI’s hospitality and tourism courses in Kuching.

UCSI University, Sarawak Campus specialises in hospitality, tourism and management courses and currently has more than 200 enrolled students. The Sarawak Campus expects to enrol a further 200 -250 students in 2010 but when the new Sarawak campus located in Sejingkat adjacent to the Borneo Convention Centre opens in 2011, it will accommodate approximately 5,000 students.

“We are delighted that Travelport has agreed to support our hospitality and tourism courses by providing Galileo booking software, training manuals and support services. Travelport will also “train the trainers” to ensure that they are fully aware of the scope and depth that the Galileo platform can provide travel agents and online travel agents,” said Lu Huang Ying, UCSI University, Sarawak Campus Chief Operation Officer.

Students that successfully complete a five day course and examination will receive a certificate from Travelport. As part of the courses Travelport will endeavour to provide students with an insight into the travel industry, including the various potential careers available to them.

“As a leading provider of travel distribution services in Malaysia, Travelport has a responsibility to contribute to the ongoing development and training of qualified agents and travel students within the travel industry. We are delighted to be working with the UCSI University’s Sarawak Campus and offer them our latest suite of training modules that will help students understand the industry’s products and processes for today’s savvy travel customers,” said Lee Chung Chin, country manager of Travelport in Malaysia.

Training and education remains central to Travelport’s work in the Asia Pacific region with many tertiary colleges and training institutions throughout the region offering Travelport’s GDS related courses. In Australia for example, more than 6,000 certificates will be issued to students this year while in India, more than 100 institutes now offer Galileo training as part of their curriculum with more than 18,000 Indian professionals enrolling in these courses annually.
