Re-established and re-branded in 2014 as ICOPEPHILS Training Forum Inc., as a non-stock corporation , the Company is now specializing on the business of travel and tourism . But its commitment to the Filipino people on entrepreneurship as
the road towards greater financial freedom is still very much a part of the company's mission.. So we still offer business start-up programs especially for those related to travel and tourism like souvenir making, or even operating a souvenir shop , a travel
cafe business and many more.
At present , our Travel Agency Management Course, for owners and managers has been approved by the Tourism Industry Board Foundation Inc . (TIBFI) and accredited by the Department of Tourism for implementation.
ICOPEPHILS is one the few training facilities accredited by the Philippine Department of Tourism to conduct the travel management and tour operator course , which is a
required training to be attended by the manager of the travel agency business if applying to become a DOT accredited travel agency.
