The WDTP Training initiative is a partnership between the WDTP, Institute of Technology Sligo, six LEADER companies and the private sector. The initiative is a tailor-made 80-hour training programme that provides tourism product providers with an accredited course (the National Certificate in Tourism Management & Marketing). Participants are mostly those involved in micro-tourism enterprises. By the end of 2005 there were 100 graduates.

The National Certificate in Eco Tourism has just been developed and will be run in the Green Box area initially, and then throughout the region.
