Hospitality professionals can save 20 to 25 percent on hospitality management courses offered through the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute’s Distance Learning program through March 15. All courses are available for $50 off the regular price.
EI has more than 30 hospitality management courses available online or through traditional print delivery in topics ranging from front office, housekeeping, and facilities management to hospitality accounting, sales and marketing, food and beverage service, and spa management. The courses use the same textbooks taught in college and university hospitality programs worldwide.
Distance Learning students can earn individual course certificates or take multiple courses to earn Certificates of Specialization in eight different subject areas; Hospitality Fundamentals Program certificate, Hospitality Operations Certificate, or diplomas in either Hospitality Management or Food and Beverage Management. A new Dual Diploma curriculum introduced last fall enables students to complete a specific 15-course sequence to earn both the hospitality and food and beverage management diplomas.
While Distance Learning is ideal for working professionals who don’t have time to attend college, many current EI Distance Learning students already have a two-year or four-year degree. They take EI courses to keep up-to-date on industry trends, prepare for a promotion or transfer, and enhance their career skills and employability. Completion of certain Distance Learning programs also counts toward the educational requirement for various EI professional certifications.
During the Distance Learning Winter Special, students save $50 off the AH&LA member price of $200 per course, or the non-member price of $245 per course, which includes a one-year AH&LA student membership. Multiple-course programs offer additional savings. There is also a time-pay option available on purchases of three or more courses. (Note: winter special savings apply only to first time payment.)
There are several ways to enroll: by downloading the Winter Special application or completing the online enrollment application, purchasing select courses through EI’s online store, or by contacting the Distance Learning department at 800-390-8399 or 517-372-8800. Reference offer code CHILL to receive the Winter Special savings.
Established in 1953 as a nonprofit educational foundation of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, the Educational Institute’s mission is to continue being the preferred provider to the lodging industry, hospitality schools, and related hospitality industries by developing and providing quality resources to train, educate, and certify hospitality professionals worldwide.
