Welcome back Mario!


Posted on 20th October 2016 by calypso in Career

Course Director Mario “The loud one” Elumba is back! Some of you might already know him as one of the very first Course Directors in Philippines and a valued member of the Calypso team during the previous ownership. He is now back and will be teaching IDCs at Calypso again from next year, starting with the first course on January 7. However, if you want to join a course, you better hurry! He is a popular guy, and the first IDC is almost fully booked already!

But don’t worry, if you don’t make it to the January IDC, there will be more chances. The following IDC is scheduled for March, and we plan to do more if there is interest. If you are interested in the course, we are still open for requests regarding dates after March, so go ahead and send us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

So again, a big welcome back Mario! We are thrilled to have you working with us again and we are looking forward to the next IDC in January!
