Global Hotel Groups Support HFTP’s Hospitality Certification Programs
November 21, 2017 9:14am
AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA (November 21, 2017) — Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) offers two certification programs that are globally recognized for setting industry standards for hospitality finance and technology professionals: Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive (CHAE®) and Certified Hospitality Technology Professional (CHTP®). These certification programs have been named a requirement for information technology and accounting employees at Rosewood Hotel Group, Two Roads Hospitality and Accorhotels Group – which operate Fairmont branded hotels.
Accorhotels Group recently followed suit with Rosewood and Two Roads Hospitality by not only having their employees become a member of HFTP, but also requiring their group to become CHAE certified. In 2016, Rosewood Hotel Group set the requirement for its information technology staff to become CHTP certified – this was the first group certification HFTP coordinated.
“Hospitality professionals recognize the importance of committing to continuing education in order to comply with evolving industry practices,” said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe. “Group certification allows organizations to match industry experience with essential hospitality knowledge. Hospitality certification helps professionals elevate their knowledge and career path, leading to higher salaries and increased job opportunities.”
HFTP offers the only designations for finance and technology professionals who are working in the hospitality industry. Both the CHAE and CHTP designations require professionals to sit for an initial competency exam, and complete continuing education credits for each renewal cycle. Qualification for the exams is based on level of education and experience in the industry; student programs are also available.
For more information about HFTP’s certification programs, contact HFTP Certification Manager Robin Bogdon at email@example.com or visit www.hftp.org. For immediate information, visit the FAQ pages for both CHTP and CHAE certifications.
