Certificate in Hospitality Operations

Course Overview

The programme includes all courses covered in the first two semesters of the Certificate in Hospitality Operations (Level 5). At this level apart from the emphasis on technical skills and quality delivery of customer service, there is also an emphasis on written and verbal communication skills, basic computer and accounting skills. The students are therefore expected to take additional courses in English language, a foreign language, business accounting and computer skills. In addition, the student must complete 240 credit hours of Work Integrated Learning at the commercial sector of the Hotel School and 600 credit hours of Work Integrated Learning in industry (off campus). The Work Integrated Learning exposes students to real life situations and thus prepares them for employment should they wish to exit at the certificate.
