The primary objective of initiating SPA training program is to help persons with disabilities develop relevant professional skills so that they can get a decent job and live an independent life. Considering the rising trend of hotel and SPA industry in Bhutan, it is felt that training persons with disabilities in SPA Therapy would broaden their opportunities for employment in the future. Upon the completion of the course, the trainees are certified as professional SPA therapists.
