Hospitality courses to boost employment in tourism sector
New short courses in hospitality at Brisbane North Institute of TAFE will help provide more trained employees in the South East Queensland tourism industry.
BNIT Hospitality Teacher Tony Dwan said short courses in hospitality had become increasingly popular in the community, as locals take advantage of the area's booming tourism industry and steady population surge.
Mr Dwan said leading job seeking website Jobaroo.com, showed hospitality work in Australia increases significantly from September/October until January each year.
"Despite the doom and gloom of the economic crisis, there are jobs around if you are willing to look for them," Mr Dwan said.
"The BNIT Short Bar and Gaming Course provides practical skills that may boost job opportunities."
The BNIT Short Bar and Gaming Course covers areas including preparing beverage products, general bar operation skills, bar and personal hygiene practices and knowledge in Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) legislation and Responsible Gambling Practices (RGA).
"The beauty of working in the hospitality industry is that employment is flexible," said Mr Dwan.
"Career opportunities are limited only by your ambition."
The Short Bar and Gaming Course starts Tuesday, 3 November at the BNIT Caboolture Campus.
