Program Description

About This Program

HWTC has partnered with the Ontario Tourism Education Council (OTEC) and Tourism SkillsNet Ontario to offer Hospitality Career Pathways (HCP), a free eight-week program that will introduce you to different careers in the hospitality industry.

HCP will provide you with a foundation of knowledge about the hospitality industry, which will help you identify fields that interest you and in which you could be successful.

This program is open to anyone who is a resident of Ontario and is eligible to work in the province. Newcomers, as well as Ontario Works (OW) and Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) recipients, are encouraged to apply.

Program Details

You will be asked to commit two hours per day, five days a week, for the eight-week duration of the program.

The program includes online instructor-led training sessions, independent activities, and one-on-one coaching sessions.

Training and certifications in WHMIS, Smart Serve, and Food Handlers, as well as resume writing, job search and interview skills, are also included in the program.

Why This Program

If you’ve ever dreamed of a career in the hospitality industry, HCP is your first step in making that dream come true.

Understanding the fundamentals of the industry now will prepare you in advance for the hospitality roles that will return once the current crisis has passed.
