On May 10th, 2010, at Phuket Thai Massage School, Sutthipong Saisakaret, Head of Phuket Provincial Labor Office or PPLO, presided over an official closing ceremony and gave certificates to the 3rd and 4th group of people who completed 60 hours of Thai Massage Training held by PPLO.
Sutthipong said that PPLO realized that Thai masseurs were in healthy careers that are famous among tourists from around the world.
Therefore it had provided Thai massage training in order to improve the ability of local masseurs. The provided training was 60 hours and not only was it free for people who attended the training but they also got a daily allowance from PPLO. This would help them to earn more income in future and assure tourists of the quality and safety of Thai massages as well.
