Training is more important than ever before. As a hospitality department trainer, you protect your property by making sure everyone is well-trained in job skills, proper safety procedures, and property and legal policies. By earning the Certified Hospitality Department Trainer certification, you show you possess skills in delivering training, analyzing needs, and evaluating results.
The CHDT designation gives you industry recognition for you—a professional who not only excels at your own job, but also takes on the added responsibility of showing others how to do the job right.
The CHDT certification can help you excel in your current position, move further toward your career goals, and show that you are among the best in your profession.
To earn the CHDT, you must complete the Trainer Development Program, pass the CHDT exam, and be a hospitality employee with job responsibilities that include training individuals for functional skills within your department.
How to Apply
To apply, you need to submit an application after attending a facilitated workshop or upon completing the web-based version of the Trainer Development Program.
Attend a facilitated group training session for the Training Development Program or individually complete the online version of the program.
The CHDT exam has 50 multiple-choice questions that you must complete within two hours. You must achieve a minimum score of 70 percent to earn the CHDT designation. If you do not score at least 70 percent, you can retake the exam up to two additional times at a cost of $25 per retake.
