The Travel, Tourism Event Planning and Marketing Program follows a curriculum is developed through an affiliation with area businesses and post secondary partnerships. These highly successful corporate businesses and education institutions understand the importance of the education and development of the future workforce.
With an eight-unit motel for a classroom, students learn the basics of the hospitality industry with specific training in front desk operations, security, housekeeping, food and beverage management, convention services, finance, marketing and event planning. The students apply classroom experiences with the hands on operation of the motel on a daily basis.
These lessons are combined with experiential field trips to historic sites, convention centers, casino hotels, cruise ships, industry conventions and amusement parks that provide insights into the various facets of the travel, tourism and marketing industry. Students have the opportunity to meet and talk with industry professionals about job descriptions and careers in today’s hospitality environment. An Advisory Board, active members of the business community of Cape May and Atlantic counties, helps support field trips, serves as guest speakers and helps ensure the up to date content of the program.
Students who successfully complete this class earn college credits that can be applied to Atlantic Cape Community College or Johnson and Wales College, giving them a head start on college and saving money on tuition.
