      The Hospitality Skills Certification (HSC) programs for hospitality employees brings the professional clout of the Educational Institute's (EI) certification programs to the people who are on the front-line with guests. EI offers designations for those who work in food and beverage, guest service, and housekeeping positions. HSC programs support skill and knowledge training integrated with performance assessment, recognition and achievement.

      To successfully earn the Maintenance Employee HSC designation, a candidate/employee must complete the following requirements:

      • Be currently employed in the hospitality industry or be a student in a workforce development program or in a hospitality management program at an accredited school
      • Achieve a score of 70% or better on a written exam
      • Receive a "Acceptable" rating on 70% of the outlined tasks on the skills validation form


      Upon successful completion of a HSC program, employees earn a certificate, lapel pin and global recognition for their accomplishment.
