The hospitality industry is brought to another level at par with international best practices through the certification of hospitality professionals, the first in the Philippines through FastTrack IT Academy. Courses offered are geared towards Certification for Hospitality Employees and Certified Hospitality Supervisor offered by a prestigious hotel association in the United States. Coupled with experiential learning of an industry-based automated hotel system Folio Plus and comprehensive financial management and report analysis using the world’s leading ERP system SAP Business One, the training package provides a very holistic approach for an individual, a fresh HRM graduate or a hospitality practitioner, to penetrate the competitive and lucrative hospitality industry local or abroad.
The certification curriculum is adapted from a course offered by the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI). The hospitality course is exactly what front-line employees must know and do for their particular job. Trainees who complete the program are prepared for the hospitality skills certification exam recognized globally. This is made possible through FastTrack Academy’s partnership with Sprott Shaw Community College Philippines, a master licensee of AHLEI.
“Our partnership with Sprott Shaw Community College Philippines strengthens our mission to provide continuing IT Education for Hospitality Professionals. FastTrack IT Academy will be offering international certification curriculum through AHLEI which will teach them globally accepted hotel standard and can eventually open more doors for them in the international market.”, says Ms. Melen Bones, Training Director of FastTrack IT Academy.
Prospective students can look forward to become proficient in a computer-based technology environment of hotels. Front office operations are simulated by the students who will have a feel on how to do basic transactions such as guest reservations, check-in and check-out to some advanced topics for end users like configuration utilizing Folio Plus Hotel Management System developed by Jinysis Software, Inc., one of the most sought after system for hotels in the Philippines to date.
Immersion with the operations analysis is also provided during the training by using an ERP system, SAP Business One. FastTrack IT Academy’s objective is to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit of our HRM practitioners by teaching them on how to read financial reports for decision-making purposes as we set our skilled hospitality employees grow to become managers and executives eventually.
