‘Welcome to Noosa’ is an online training program that provides basic information on Noosa – why the region is so special, its history, key things to do in Noosa and information on the Noosa Biosphere, as well as providing great customer service strategies and information on workplace health and safety.
With over 2000 people completing the course to date, more businesses are getting behind the program and it can provide an advantage when looking for employment. On completion of the course, participants receive a certificate and a ‘Welcome to Noosa’ badge.
