Over 80 representatives from government agencies, universities and colleges, and hotels and resorts attended the information session facilitated by Asia World Hospitality to promote American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute.
AHLEI, through its collaboration with US Embassy Commercial Service, invited speakers from the Department of Tourism, Department of Education, Seda hotels, and schools from all over the country.
Among the topics discussed was the development of human capital in the tourism industry, led by Regional Director Nelly Nita N. Dillera, CGSP of DoT Region 12 (SOCCSKSARGEN).
“AHLEI is a strong organization that gives premium programs to the hospitality and tourism workforce. It provides value-added learning with high quality modules and insights of top key experts plus the opportunity to practice and work abroad with the acquired skills and competency through their international certification,” said Dillera.
AHLEI also touched on the opportunities available in the tourism and hospitality industry, especially applicable to the Philippines, which drew 3.4 million foreign tourists in the first half of 2018, an 11 percent growth from previous year.
The institute provides working hospitality professionals with training and continuous learning. Its internationally recognized certification programs include certification options for every level of hotel employee, from front level to general manager.
