Our training provides the vocational education, employability basics, language support, and customer service skills needed to obtain and succeed at a job in the hospitality industry.

Our classes are licensed by the Nevada Commission on Post-Secondary Education, and employers consider the training equivalent to one year of job experience. We offer free upgrade training to eligible hospitality workers from participating properties, enhancing their skills and earning capacity. In addition, we develop and deliver customized on-site training for properties to meet specialized needs.

Our training emphasizes not only the relevant technical “hard” skills but also the “soft” skills necessary for success in the hospitality industry. We encourage students to have a positive attitude, as well as excellent communications and guest relations skills.
