On Nov 8th 2012, Alibaba.com and Web Courses Bangkok celebrated the Grand Opening of Alibaba.com's first ever licensed training center outside of China.
To address the e-commerce education gap in Thailand, Alibaba.com is teaming up with Thailand's leading web and graphic design training center, Web Courses Bangkok, led by UK-born Carl Heaton, the center's managing director. Having previously worked as a web design consultant for the United Nations and the Royal Thai Government, Heaton began the center in 2008 when he saw a need for more internationally competitive web designers.
The course curriculum aims to educate Thai small business owners on ways they can improve their export businesses on the Alibaba.com platform.
This is the country's first official Alibaba.com training course and is the only official program made especially for Thai entrepreneurs and businesses – with all the latest information about the Alibaba.com platform and its marketing tools.
