During the first phase, 16 master trainers were trained, who in turn trained other trainers and specialists from the industry.These then trained young people all over the country, who afterwards  found employment in the country’s many hotels.The concept was implemented on the basis of a dual training system of theory and practice, in close cooperation with the political authorities and local hotels and restaurants.
