Release of the 2019 training calendar

BelgraviaPRO (RTO Code 40890) has released dates for the 2019 training calendar, and we are offering two practical training courses in 2019. There are spaces available in two courses scheduled to be held at the BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park on the 20/05/19 – 02/06/19 and on the 29/07/19 – 11/08/19.

The training course involves two weeks practical work experience at a premier holiday park where you train in all departments of the park including housekeeping, outdoor operations and reception. Also, trainees that choose to stay at the park will receive a substantial discount on accommodation.

The two week course would suit those wanting to gain knowledge and skills relevant to a career in holiday parks, motels and/or resorts. This shorter course option is suitable for individuals wanting to gain valuable “hands-on” practical experience in a holiday park. To obtain a full, nationally-accredited qualification, there is an additional online theoretical component involved in the course. The theory of the full qualification is self-paced, with a 12 month timeframe to complete the Certificate, but it is possible to complete your training as quickly as you wish – as long as the two week practical component has been attended.

Belgravia Leisure and PRO Management announces new parks, resorts and tourism joint venture

Darren Beck, Natalie Berzinski and Nick Cox

(L to R): Darren Beck, Natalie Berzinski and Nick Cox join forces to launch BelgraviaPRO.

Belgravia Leisure announced the launch of its parks, resorts and tourism arm, BelgraviaPRO.

Belgravia Leisure CEO, Nick Cox, said BelgraviaPRO is a joint venture with long-established Parks and Resort Operational (PRO) Management.

“This new partnership brings Belgravia Leisure’s solid asset management systems to PRO Management’s portfolio of 22 properties as well as the financial security of the parent company, Belgravia Group,” he said.

“PRO Management founder and Managing Director, Darren Beck, is a respected industry figure who has successfully managed a wide range of camping grounds and large-scale, resort-style tourist parks in popular holiday destinations across Australia.”

Mr Beck has accepted the position of BelgraviaPRO General Manager and Director effective from 1 February 2018, and will work closely with client partners, staff and contractors for a seamless transition.

“We recognise the excellent work of our staff and contractors, as well as the important role they play in the local communities in which we work,” he said.

“Continuation of this great service is an important part of our new partnership. BelgraviaPRO will continue employment for all existing staff and recognise prior service, and contractor services will also be maintained during the transition.”

BelgraviaPRO also owns PRO Management’s Registered Training Organisation (RTO), delivering nationally recognised qualifications in parks, resort and tourism operations and management.

“It is business as usual for staff and contractors, holiday makers, permanent residents and RTO students during the transition,” Mr Beck said.

BelgraviaPRO is soon to partner with more than 10 government and non-government organisations to operate over 20 holiday park destinations across Australia in 2018.
