HOW TO BE A TIT TAR MASTER?
When you sign up in our Tit Tar apprenticeship programme, you will first go through 2 weeks of attachment where you will be assigned to shadow our Master. Throughout this period, you will learn the culture of Wah Toh Tit Tar as well as how our Master interacts with our patients, as well as the conduct of a Tit Tar Master. You will be required to closely observe and absorb the environment and learn through showing. After this attachment period, you will then progress to learn while working at the Front Desk.
Once you have progressed to this stage, you will take on the role at the reception area for 1 month. You will learn the administrative process of Wah Toh Tit Tar.
