TISOH’s course content, for each diploma and certificate offering, is predominantly task-oriented and practical, so that learning parallels the duties and responsibilities of industry incumbents. TISOH trains individuals using hands-on approaches that are applicable to specific industry jobs and professions, as opposed to traditional degree-focused pedagogical methods. TISOH’s core mission of quality service and professionalism, consistent with the hospitality industry’s standards, is a key component of all TISOH’s certificate and diploma offerings. Our staff and industry professional instructors set appropriate examples by interacting with students, and each other, in the spirit of hospitality.
The pineapple is a traditional symbol of welcome, friendship, conviviality, and hospitality. In this spirit, quality service and professionalism, consistent with the hospitality industry’s standards, are TISOH’s core mission.
Located minutes drive from the Las Vegas Strip, our modern welcome center greets visitors and prospective students each day. Glimpse into our enchanting design lab, the first stop of every tour. The Administration building houses the admissions, academic, student, and career services centers.
The TISOH Design Lab is a collaborative effort from many industry sponsors coming together to showcase the latest trends in event decor, lighting, linens, graphics, and much more. This working laboratory allows our students to touch and feel and experience how spaces are transformed into event venues that delight and mesmerize. The roomscape is designed by creative maestro and TISOH lecturer Lenny Talarico CSEP, Chief Experiential Architect, Blueprint Studios.
Every student becomes part of the TISOH community and the student lounge and recharge bar is a great place to start making friends. Each semester, dozens of industry guests, students, alums, administrators, and instructors pass through the halls. In addition to classes, complimentary workshops are held for current students and alums. The TISOH is also home to a number of Las Vegas-based hospitality associations. The institution is truly a hub for hospitality. During COVID-19, the school has introduced remote ways for students to connect with one another through Padlet, Kahoot and other technologies. Zoom hosted happy hours and other social events are happening every semester to help our students build relationships and friendships!
State-of-the-art classrooms include the latest teaching technologies including 80″ flat-screen monitors, tiered seating, power inputs in every training table, and WiFi throughout the complex. The lecture hall features a massive purpose-built hotel front desk equipped with property management systems from Par Springer Miller and Go Concierge, to simulate real-time guest interactions.
Right now, we are hosting our classroom sessions remotely via Zoom. TISOH class sizes are normally between 8 and 12 students, allowing for much more personal learning interactions. Certified industry instructors engage students remotely with small group activities, guest speaker panels, and projects, fostering an environment where students can be an active part of the experience. The Academic building houses our classrooms, lecture hall, student resource center, student lounge, events center, and production studio.
