Morocco Tourism awards Seal of Excellence in hotel and tourism training

The Morocco Ministry of Tourism is dedicated to presenting a Seal of Excellence for vocational training in hospitality and tourism.

Morocco’s Ministry of Tourism is working to recognize institutions of hospitality training as well as public and private tourism that are aligned with the standards and criteria of quality and performance required by the Guidelines for Excellence Label. These guidelines were developed by the Ministry of Tourism in cooperation with OFPPT and professionals of the sector.
