Hospitality is the relationship between a guest and a host, wherein the host receives the guest with a smile and makes them feel comfortable.

If you want to work your way up in hospitality, and bring a smile to people’s face, then the Certificate II in Hospitality is a great place to start. This qualification provides you with the opportunity to work under direct supervision in restaurants, hotels, motels, catering operations, clubs, pubs, cafes and coffee shops.

Learning from our trained hospitality trainer’s students will gain practical skills and learn how best to interact with customers while gaining social and cultural sensitivity skills.
