The Travel and Tourism industry is one that is continually developing. The Travel and Tourism certificate is a travel counselor or airline agent-focused program. Emphasis is placed on technical, destination geography sales and marketing. With consultation of the department head, students will have the ability to design the area of focus through the two hospitality/tourism electives. Some courses are only available evenings. 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.

Internship Considerations

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.

Health, Character and Technical Standards
Technical standards have been established to provide guidance to students regarding skills and abilities required to function successfully in the Hospitality and Tourism Management program and ultimately in the Hospitality/Tourism profession. Students in the Hospitality and Tourism Management Degree and any of the related certificate programs must be able to demonstrate:

  1. the ability to act in a professional manner on field trips or at internship locations;
  2. sufficient vision, hearing, and verbal abilities to express and exchange information and ideas, as well as to interpret important instructions in the classroom or at internship locations;
  3. the ability to work with frequent interruptions, to respond appropriately to unexpected situations, and to cope with extreme variations in workload and stress levels.

Although not a technical standard for entry into the Hospitality and Tourism Management programs, applicants should be aware that some positions may require the physical ability to stand for long periods and to lift up to 70 pounds.
