Description:This two-year Ontario College Diploma program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and practical skills necessary for careers in the hospitality and tourism industry. This expanding industry has a demand for highly skilled, people-oriented graduates with good service orientation and managerial techniques. Although the hospitality industry involves long hours and shift work, it can also be rewarding. To acquaint students with these working conditions, some practical classes are held during the evenings and weekends and may include participation at community events sponsored through the College.

The program is divided into four levels and emphasizes practical applications and a foundation of managerial skills. In the first two levels, students study a variety of introductory courses to prepare them for entry-level employment. In the last two levels, there is a greater focus on courses that provide management skills including computer technology, menu planning, financial analysis, law and hospitality management projects. The program requires that students complete 500 hours of work in the field of hotel, restaurant and tourism industry as a prerequisite to graduation. This work experience must be officially documented and approved by the coordinator of the program as a prerequisite to graduation.
