Certified Hospitality Department Trainer

Successful department trainers build a strong team and increase productivity, and strive for the three “S” of training: Standards, Service, and Safety. Hospitality employees who complete the Trainer Development Program and who have job responsibilities that include training individuals for functional skills within their department qualify to earn the Certified Hospitality Departmental Trainer (CHDT®) professional designation. The CHDT® designation provides formal recognition for those employees who not only excel at their own job, but also take on the added responsibility of showing others how to do the job right.
