Professional Certification Short Courses

The Private Hotel School provides professional certification short courses for students, industry practitioners interested in enhancing their current skills and for those gearing-up for a career shift to be part of the dynamic hospitality industry. Participants have the opportunity to complete a short course and receive a certificate of completion.

These are intensive, six month (32 to 64 contact hours) short courses introducing concepts and practicalities of hospitality and culinary operations within the hotel and catering industry context. Delegates will be presented with an overview of the industry, together with an introduction to techniques, from an understanding of the principles of the various disciplines through lectures from subject experts and practical applications such as knife skills.

Passing Grade

Students must receive a grade of "C" (minimum 60%) to pass in each subject. A student who incurs a grade of "F" in any course, is required to retake the course and obtain a passing grade. Any financial implications of retaking a course will be at a cost of R5 200.

Attendance

The Private Hotel School aims to prepare students to be successful professionals. Attendance and punctuality are important work ethics for students to develop. An attendance of at least 80% in all theoretical classes and 90% of all practical classes is required. The total of excused absences should therefore not exceed 20% of theoretical course hours and 10% of practical course hours. Students who are absent, whether excused or unexcused, in more than the indicated requirements, are considered to have officially withdrawn from that course and will be given a grade of "F" in that course.
