The first class of the Marriott Training Academy, held at Fiji Marriott Momi Bay, celebrated the completion of their two-month ho­tel operation training.

Graduating with a 95 per cent success rate, the graduating class of April 2022 consisted of 38 candidates, from local villages selected by the Land Owners Community (LOC).

Over 150 applications were received from which 40 successful candidates were shortlisted, and they then under­took an eight-week course learning the tricks of the trade from the island’s hospitality experts.

The group immersed themselves within different disciplines that in­cluded front office, housekeeping, food and beverage and kitchen and steward.

The department trainers and land owners community ensured the 38 suc­cessful graduates had demonstrated a wide range of skills and were knowl­edgeable in each training category.

The class is competent in a variety of service areas, including:

  • front office as guest service agents and porters,
  • housekeeping and public area clean­ing attendant,
  • service team across, all five of the resort’s food and beverage outlets, and
  • positions as commis chef or stew­arding.

“We hope what you achieved today will enable you to go back to your dif­ferent villages, to continue to do some­thing that we aspire to see in the next few years.

Fiji Marriott Resort Momi Bay gen­eral manager, Silvano Dressino, said after two extremely challenging years, Fiji was busy again.

Last month over 62,000 visitors ar­rived in Fiji.

“We are on a solid recovery also for our resort and for July we expect a re­cord month,” Mr Dressino said.
