The purpose of the Hospitality Operations Certificate program is to provide students with the skills necessary to follow a career path that could lead them to a variety of management opportunities. Participants will gain valuable knowledge that reflects the most current practices and trends in today's hospitality industry.
Brighton College has partnered with the Educational Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) to deliver a well-rounded curriculum that focuses on key hospitality business management courses including: Front Office, Housekeeping, Facilities, Food and Beverage, Sales and Marketing. Hotel and Restaurant Accounting and Business Communications help to round out the program.
This 25-week certificate program is instructor-led, allowing students to navigate quickly through the material. The curriculum includes experiential lectures and workshops facilitated by specialized industry experts with at least 5 years experience in the industry. The program also includes a work experience term (practicum) at various small and mid-sized hotels or lodges throughout the Lower Mainland. The successful completion of all courses (including a 4 week practicum) is required for program graduation. Food Safe and Serving It Right are also required for both practicum placement and graduation. Students earn certificates in each of the AHLA courses successfully completed as well as a certificate in Hospitality Operations from Brighton College, once all program requirements are met.
