Training a Five-Star Cast for Tourism
Why study for four years? This is a question the folks behind the Canadian Tourism and Hospitality Institute (CTHI) like to ask.
They are referring to students who spend four years in college, only to end up jobless. The CTHI counteroffer is job-oriented training for two years or less.
Samie Lim, CTHI president, admits there are already too many tourism schools in the country. “But there’s little genuine professional training,” he says. “Despite their four-year degrees, our graduates do not meet the personnel needs of resorts, hotels, restaurants, even cruise ships in the travel and tourism industry.”
