CIBT Adds Vocational Training Center in Weifang, China
Capital Alliance Group Inc. (TSX.V: CPT) reports that its subsidiary, CIBT School of Business & Technology Corp. (“CIBT”) has signed an academic and joint venture agreement with Weifang Commercial School (“WCS”) to provide Automotive Maintenance, Hotel Management and Accounting programs to complement their existing curricula. WCS will transfer approximately 2,000 students from their three departments into CIBT’s western based advanced programs starting this coming academic year in September. Students enrolled in the upcoming school year will begin their courses with WCS and gradually migrate to CIBT’s advanced curricula with English enhancement and job skills training. Future students wishing to pursue these programs may enroll directly with CIBT’s Vocational Training Center located within Weifang Commercial School.
This new arrangement amends a previous agreement announced on November 14, 2006 regarding the proposed acquisition of Weifang Commercial School. Both parties have agreed to initiate the business relationship by way of a joint venture, while negotiations for further acquisition efforts continue.
“CIBT will be expanding its presence throughout China by way of establishing CIBT Education Centers, CIBT Technology Centers, and CIBT Vocational Training Centers,” commented Toby Chu President & CEO of Capital Alliance Group and CIBT. “This latest development with Weifang Commercial School furthers our continued expansion into the vocational training sector for the growing Chinese TVET (technical vocational education training) market.”
