Curriculum for students entering program in 2013-14.
The Hotel Administration program will prepare students for an entry-level position in the hotel industry. The student will explore the various types of positions and responsibilities as they relate to the size and needs of a Deluxe to Tourist Hotel, Inn, Lodge or Resort in relation to front office operations. Classroom instruction is completed by hands-on industry software training. Students will have the opportunity to take the American Hotel and Motel Association certification tests in Rooms Division and/or Marketing/Sales Specialist. This program is available evenings only. This program is financial aid eligible. To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must submit an official, final high school transcript, or the equivalent documentation that demonstrates high school completion, to the NHTI Admissions Office.
NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
