Who Should Take This Restaurant Hospitality Training Course?
Our Restaurant Hospitality course is aimed at front of house staff in restaurants – it teaches them how to look after guests at every stage, from the moment they arrive to when they leave. Waiters and waitresses are often the face of the business, so it’s crucial that they know how to communicate with guests and take orders professionally and amicably.
Supervisors and managers can also take the course, as it will help them recognise what standards the staff that they supervise should follow, and what they should do themselves if they also contribute to front of house activities.
On successful completion of the course, you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
All of our courses are accredited by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
