Leeward Community College presents a unique certificate of completion in Travel Industry. This certification is designed for those who are interested in becoming involved in the travel industry. Such areas may include hospitality, tour guide, visitor services, vacation advisor, etc. These individuals are often very customer-oriented, and are interested in working in a variety of different locations, either throughout the country or on a global scale. Students are required to take 16-19 credits in order to earn the certification.
Some of the classes in which students will participate throughout the duration of the program are as follows: Customer Service, Human Relations in Business, Introduction to Travel Industry Management, Business Computer System, Computing Literacy and Applications, Digital Tools for the Information World, Hotel and Lodging, and Professional Employment Preparation. Collectively, these courses will give students an adequate skill set in order to become more marketable to potential employers. Students will most likely obtain only entry-level positions with this certificate. However, through experience and training within a company, students can be quickly promoted in this growing industry.
