WHY A PINEAPPLE?

 

A pineapple has a heritage as a symbol of welcome, friendship, conviviality, and hospitality. Quality service and professionalism, consistent with the standards of expectation by the hospitality industry, are key ingredients of TISOH’s certificate and diploma offerings.

 

DELIVERING THE MISSION

 

TISOH’s course content, for each certificate offering, is predominantly task-oriented and practical, so as to parallel the duties and responsibilities of industry incumbents. Instruction consists of training individuals using hands-on approaches that are applicable to specific industry jobs and professions, as opposed to traditional degree-focused pedagogical methods. Quality service and professionalism, consistent with the work performance standards expected by hospitality employers, are key ingredients of the training provided. In the process of offering these courses, staff members as well as industry professional instructors set appropriate examples by interacting with students, and each other, in the spirit of hospitality.
