70 complete Amadeus Basic Reservation Course

LCC tourism grads take the edge in airline and travel services employment

Seventy students in the Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management (BSTM) degree at La Consolacion College Bacolod completed the Amadeus Basic Reservation Course, which is a component of the degree program. The Amadeus is a widely-used computer reservation system that supports various airlines worldwide. Knowledge and skills on operating the system give tourism graduates an edge when they look for jobs especially in the airline industry says Dr. Airene B. Gedorio, BSTM program head.

A tracer study for graduates of the past two years revealed that more than 70 percent of those who finished BSTM degree from LCC Bacolod are employed and already have earned a permanent status in the domestic and international industries. Graduates say that communication skills, personality and technical competence were the major factors that influence their employment and their ability to succeed in their jobs.

The Amadeus Basic Reservation course is provided within the BSTM curriculum but one that goes beyond the minimum requirements of the Commission on Higher Education. Dr. Randdie P. Cuelo, VP for Academic Affairs said that LCC Bacolod is determined to provide students with all opportunities to develop professional and technical competence. The college being the pioneer in the offering of the BS Tourism degree in the province remains focused in promoting excellence in these specializations through value-laden programs and educational facilities that match the trends and demands in the industry, he added. Currently, there are 331 students in the BSTM.

A completion ceremony was held on August 10, 2016 at the Millennium Hall of the HRM & Tourism Center where students received Certificates of Completion and Rating handed to them by Amadeus representative Malou M. Avila. Sr. Maria A. Garcia, OSA, Administrative Officer for Academics and organizer of the event said that the administration is pleased to have the parents at the ceremony. One of them who is an OFW said that he’s very happy that the college has included Amadeus in its curriculum. With the qualification, graduates could easily land a job not only in the airline industry but as well as in international hotels, tour and travel industry services where the system is also being used he added.
