New hospitality training programs available at campus locations across British Columbia
Vancouver, BC – April 11, 2012 – CDI College has launched
three new career training programs designed to meet the demand for
professionals in British Columbia’s exciting hospitality industry. With
new opportunities always arising, employers are investing in trained
professionals, like CDI College grads, to help take their businesses to
the next level.
Growth in the hospitality field means employers are looking for passionate and skilled individuals to manage their guests’ experiences. The new Hospitality Management program allows students to develop these skills in under a year, including food service, leadership, sales and marketing, and financial management. Upon completion of the program, graduates will not only receive a Hospitality Management diploma, they also earn an American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) diploma, giving them even more credentials to help start their new career. This well-rounded program provides students with the knowledge to succeed in a broad range of hospitality settings.
Did you know that more than half of BC’s hospitality employees work in the Lower Mainland? This means that students can train and work in the communities they live in - CDI College’s new Hospitality programs are available at campus locations in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, Richmond, Abbotsford and Victoria.
Today’s job options in the hospitality business go beyond restaurants and hotels. The Hospitality Operations diploma program offers students a wide range of career paths, from cruise ships and amusement parks to spas and casinos. In just 31 weeks, students learn the business management skills employers demand to supervise their complex services and facilities.
For those with limited time, CDI College designed the Hospitality Certificate of Specialization so students could gain new skills, grow with their present employer or advance from a job to a career. In 15 short weeks, graduates gain the housekeeping, front office, security, and computer system skills necessary to quickly enter this fast-paced industry.
Trained by industry-experts in small classrooms and on-the-job, graduates of CDI College’s hospitality programs can help launch successful careers both locally and abroad in restaurants, hotels and other hospitality settings.
Applications are now being accepted for all three Hospitality programs at all British Columbia campuses. For more information, or to learn how you can get started, fill in the form to your right.
