Starting Out in a Hospitality Career

There are many hospitality industry certificates and certifications available to those who want to build upon their knowledge base, CV expertise and career experience.  Which certifications should be pursued is dependent on your area of focus and career goals.

Certificates are very good stepping stones at the start of your career and may be earned much faster than certifications, which often require 2 to 5 years tenure in the same position.

The Educational Institutes of the AH&LA (American Hotel & Lodging Association) and the National Restaurant Association offer certifications for administrators, educators, operators and suppliers in the hospitality industry.  Many hospitality professionals hold more than one certification.

Search and find other sources of advanced certificates and certifications as part of advancing your career.
