Continuing Education Never Stops at the Manta Ray Bay Resort
All dive guides, concierges, front desk staff and even our drivers are undergoing updated medical training.
This initiative is being conducted by Oliver “OP” Acker and Michael Ranganbay, our two PADI EFR Instructors.
“This training is just another example of my effort aimed at having the best staff possible and ensuring that the people in daily contact with our guests are all medically trained,” says Bill. We have regularly provided training for housekeepers, cooks, wait staff and front desk people so this current training is another example of our commitment to our staff and guests.
Bill is still encouraging everyone to try his FREE Flight Help tool and try to beat his itineraries and rates from anywhere in the world to Yap. He’s been helping people for 30 years and shares his knowledge with everyone – even combining Yap with Palau, Chuuk and the Philippines.
