“We have to constantly train workers to improve our standards” stated General Manager NBC, Corletha Ollivierre. She said that they have the responsibility to maintain standards at NBC. She also said that a trained workforce is more equipped and efficient and there are more chances for advancement. According to Ollivierre, standards need to be lifted but it cannot be done by NBC alone, so that is why other radio stations are engaged. It is hoped that participants will apply new skills and disseminate information to other colleagues at their various workplaces. In addition, she thanked the participants for taking part and the CED for financing the programme.

Marina Salandy-Browne, Course Facilitator, thanked the participants for giving her the opportunity to educate them and also to the CED for making it possible for her to be here. She urged the participants to become practitioners if what was learnt so as to aid in further progression.

Jacintha James, representative from the Center for Enterprise Development, stated that it was easy for the CED to fund such a programme because there was a need. According to James, standards need to be improved and hopes that this course aids participants in developing better skills. She also stated that participants need to be more creative and competitive. She urged participants to implement everything that was learnt and make the best use of it. (API)
