Edinburgh Zoo has trained 18 staff in computer skills in a bid to help it retain its position as one of Scotland's most popular tourist attractions. The zoo's management believes that information technology knowledge will be vital as the business faces competition from other tourist attractions. The staff completed a ten-week ECDL course, designed to fit around their jobs. As the trainees came from a variety of jobs, the course had to be flexible. One afternoon a week was spent at the Rewards Training Consultancy in Edinburgh, the local learndirect centre.
