The training company was started in an effort to provide much needed support to the tourism stakeholders and hospitality workforce in order to elevate the standards of services we provide to compete with other luxury travel destinations.”
Hospitality training services is a new training company that offers training and professional development opportunities for the hospitality workforce in Belize or anyone wishing to start a career in the tourism industry.
HTS is the only company in Belize that has a license to offer AHLEI certifications in the country.
The courses range from all entry level positions (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant server, guest service professional server, maintenance employee, line cook, & lodging security officer) to supervisory, managerial, department head and general manager certifications.
There are four scheduled- certified guest service professional, certified restaurant server, certified front desk representative and certified guest room attendant.
