AHLA members can access a variety of training resources and opportunities for their staff.
Mobile Hospitality Training
The AHLA, Olds College, and the Government of Alberta have collaborated to create a new tourism and hospitality program that will transform hospitality education in Alberta. This learning initiative allows students to access training videos from their smartphone or tablet – meaning students can learn anytime, from anywhere.
The AHLA and the Government of Alberta each contributed $500,000 to develop the training videos with Olds College. This is an investment in tourism and hospitality that will increase the amount of skilled, educated workers in the industry.
Stay tuned for more information on when the first videos will be released.
