Description
The first year of this program is designed to prepare students to work in hospitality and tourism businesses by providing courses aimed at developing a fundamental business and customer service background. Students will study through classroom based course work and lab based lunchtime fine dining service in Jane’s restaurant. Students will also obtain certifications in First Aid and It's Good Business. While a one year exit-certificate is available, it is recommended that students complete a diploma to be most competitive in the marketplace after graduation.

In the second year of the program, students will select a major course of study in one of two areas:

The courses are delivered from a management perspective and include classroom and lab based course work.
