Today's successful department trainers must have effective communication techniques as well as knowledge of practical skills. They must keep pace with change, improve their knowledge, and share their experience with others.

Hospitality employees who complete the Trainer Development Program and who have job responsibilities that include training individuals for functional skills within their department qualify to earn the Certified Hospitality Departmental Trainer (CHDT®) professional certification designation. The CHDT® provides formal recognition for those employees who not only excel at their own job, but also take on the added responsibility of showing others how to do the job right. 

The CHDT® designation may be used on letterhead, business cards, and other writings.
