The Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI) has endorsed the Maldives Butler Academy.
The academy is the Maldives’ first institute dedicated to the training of butlers in the Maldives, registered and recognized by the Ministry of Tourism in the Maldives to develop and specialize professionals in the tourism and hospitality industry.
MATI comments, “MATI recognizes the importance of an institution that is focused on developing Butlers that will serve in the Maldives hospitality and beyond.”
Mohamed Yamany, the Principal and Trainer of Maldives Butler Academy said, “Maldives Butler Academy is honored by the recognition of MATI of initiatives by Maldivian enterprises that are focused on making a difference in the Maldivian hospitality industry.”
The Butler Academy was initiated for the purpose of contributing to the Government’s efforts to improve and provide opportunities for the locals here in the Maldives and assist them in growing in their respective careers. The Honorable Tourism Minister, Dr. Abdulla Mausoom, expressed his gratitude for the initiative taken by Maldives Butler Academy to provide certified courses for hospitality and tourism professionals.
The minister said, “This initiative will be a game-changer to the tourism industry. As part of the Ministry’s master plan to provide more opportunities for locals, we believe the Maldives Butler Academy will assist us in producing top-level butlers for the industry. The Ministry intends to introduce new tourism sectors to the Maldives such as real estate tourism and private island tourism under the new act. Hence, there is a need for more local certified butlers as we want more locals to be involved in higher-paying positions.”
