Very good on the trade test

29 June 2022

Madelen Berg Hansen achieved very good on the trade test, after completing her apprenticeship at the Lofotr Viking Museum.

Congratulations! After two years of apprenticeship at the Lofotr Viking Museum, Madelen Berg Hansen went up for his degree in tourism. We are proud that she passed the test!

We are even more proud that over the course of two years she has put in considerable effort to get through the many work areas associated with the certificate.

“Madelen has worked with booking, store sales, ticket sales, events, tours and dissemination, marketing, café, festival and everything else that the museum is working on. She has been skilled, eager and brave and always done her best. It has been a pleasure to have her as an apprentice,” says instructor Hege Anita Eilertsen (marketing manager at Museum Nord).

“For Museum Nord, it is important and right to have apprentices. This is part of our contribution to creating the expertise we, as part of the tourism industry, need. We need employees with the right knowledge of tourism as a field of work. We want to attract guests and create great experiences for all visitors. Skilled employees make it possible to succeed,” concludes Eilertsen.

Madelen is the 5th apprentice at the Lofotr Viking Museum (the museum has had an apprenticeship in blacksmithing, office, tourism).
