INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION NETWORKING

 

Whether a student is starting a new career or seeking to advance in one, it is vitally important to build and maintain a professional network of business contacts. TISOH is proud to partner with ten national and international industry associations. These associations have regular meetings and events where TISOH students are invited to attend. School faculty and alumni also belong to these associations and may act as facilitators for introductions.

INDUSTRY SPEAKER PANELS

 

By hosting distinguished guest speaker panel presentations, TISOH programs attempt to bring the industry to our students. These panels comprise of executives and top professionals representing different segments of the industry. They directly relate their meaningful work history and operational responsibilities to students, sharing stories describing their personal career journeys. Online students have access to recorded video panel presentations where available.

INTERNET ACCESS AND COMPUTER USE

 

Students who wish to bring their notebook computers to class may enjoy high speed internet access. PC’s are available for student use at the school facility.

EXTERNSHIPS

 

Many classroom programs require externships that serve as important practical learning experiences. The school has 1,000 hours or more of externship opportunities available every semester. Online students receive assistance from the school to perform an externship in Las Vegas (can normally be condensed for completion in 2-3 days) or letters of introduction and contacts where available in their local area.

MENTORSHIPS

 

Most TISOH programs are project based and require students to create professional portfolios that showcase their ability and skill. To facilitate learning, faculty instructors are assigned to students as mentors. These mentors are familiar with the progress of their student mentees and can act as a go-to source for questions and guidance. For online students, their assigned instructor acts as their personal mentor.

ONLINE LEARNING RESOURCE

 

For classroom students who are also working adults, it is possible that they may have to miss an occasional session. TISOH offers an online companion resource that mirrors and supplements learning materials presented in the classroom. Simply log in to the online learning environment and view missed presentations.

TECH SUPPORT

 

While basic computer proficiency is a requirement in the modern hospitality workplace, we recognize that not all students have the requisite skills. TISOH offers technical support ranging from remedial to advanced assistance on a reasonable basis. The school is not a computer school and will not teach computer software programs in their entirety or provide hardware support on a regular basis. However, trained staff members are ready to meet with students offering step by step tech support as needed. For online students, technical support is available through mail and phone consultations.

TUTORING

 

Learning a new career or a new skill set is a challenging endeavor. This is especially true for adult learners, who may have rusty study skills. Our caring instructors are willing to donate their time to offer assistance outside of class. Simply reach out and schedule appointments. For online students, your assigned instructor is an ever present resource.

WITHDRAWAL

 

In the unlikely event that a student wants to withdraw from an active classroom or online program, they may do so by submitting a formal withdrawal request and completing a brief withdrawal survey.
