In addition, on-the-job training is provided through a cooperative work experience program conducted with local industry professionals. A fully equipped laboratory features all the facilities necessary for students to prepare and serve meals. Computer Labs are used to assist the students in teaching the Hotel Front Office course, the Food and Beverage Operations course and the Food and Beverage Merchandising course.
