Helping Canadians get back to work.


The Hospitality Certificate program at CDI College introduces students to several areas of the hotel and food services industry. Each course is designed to introduce students to different aspects of the hospitality field such as housekeeping management, food and beverage services, hotel security, and much more.

The Hospitality Certificate consists of five hospitality modules. The program does not include a practicum placement, but students are able to upgrade to the Hospitality Management diploma to receive more training.

Successful graduates will receive the Hospitality Certificate as well as credits towards the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) diploma, which are transferable to many colleges and universities.

Graduates have found work locally and abroad in restaurants, hotels, and other hospitality settings.
