All participants enrolled in AHA's training programs are automatically enrolled into AHA's Hospitality Professional Certificate (HPC) program. The HPC consists of a series of self-paced online seminars that have been created for students and hospitality professionals. AHA's hospitality professional seminars emphasize the development of both personal and professional leadership traits needed to be successful in the hospitality industry, regardless of your position. All of AHA's certificate programs are delivered through World Campus - AHA's custom designed online learning management system.

Cultural Exchange

The cornerstone of all of AHA's educational and training programs is the study of culture, and the ability of our participants to understand and respect different cultures and beliefs in order to successfully manage and lead within a multicultural workplace. All participants of AHA's training programs are provided a student membership into AHA's eCafé, a global hospitality community located on World Campus. Through participation in eCafé, students have the opportunity to meet new friends, join global discussions, participate in hospitality related committees, and share their culture through our cultural spotlight corner. This is your opportunity to participate in a professional and social networking community within the hospitality industry.
